Our members, our dreams

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

Old Grace Housing Co-operative means a lot to me at this stage of my life. It has come into existence at just the right time. I’m excited to be able to spend more time doing the things that bring me joy, and less time on a house that is too big for me now.
Building neighbourliness and friendship with people who share some common values, enjoying the great variety of folks around me, and passing the years with a balance of community and privacy feels like a perfect combination.
As an active member and co-chair of the Membership Committee, it’s exciting to get to know my fellow members while helping build the co-op.–
Shelly Blanco

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.
