Our members, our dreams

Our members are proud of the co-op and what we are creating. To meet some of them, click here.

We recently retired to the same street that we lived on 47 years ago – Lenore Street in Wolseley. We had been farming and raising four sons in western Manitoba. We developed a strong sense of community through our work: Hardo as an organic farmer and flax grower, and Judie a junior high school teacher involved in many community-based projects. We were drawn to Old Grace at first because of its location in Wolseley. But we quickly learned it was a good philosophical fit for us too. The members’ concern for the environment, the fact that it will be home to a variety of age groups, and as a co-op, participation in decisions is encouraged.  A real community is being created here.

A brand new co-op for a grand old neighbourhood

Old Grace Housing Co-operative (OGHC) is a new housing co-op in the heart of Winnipeg’s Wolseley neighbourhood. The co-op is currently under construction on the site of the original Grace Hospital and will be ready for occupancy in early 2018.

The 60-suite building’s design both reflects the scale and character of the homes in this well-established community and exceeds Canadian standards for environmental sustainability. The co-operative is committed to providing affordable housing, is open to individuals and families, and will be pet friendly and smoke-free.
