Abbey Retreat Centre is a residential facility in the beautiful Algonquin highlands, in a wooded area fronting on two ponds.  We offer four-day retreats for people at any stage in the cancer journey together with a caregiver.  These retreats offer time for companionship, learning practices to stay well and whole while dealing with cancer, and times for meditation, yoga, expressive art, music, and a fine menu.

The Centre also hosts various educational programs, and is available as a venue for all sorts of gatherings, with overnight accommodation for 6-12, and seating space for 40-50 for concerts, speakers, wedding, and so on.  All of these activities are in support of the cancer support retreats.
