Old Grace Housing Co-operative (OGHC) is a housing co-op in the heart of Winnipeg’s Wolseley neighbourhood.
OGHC consists of a 60-suite complex on the site of the original Grace Hospital at Preston Avenue and Arlington Street in Winnipeg’s Wolseley neighbourhood and four townhouses on the north-west corner of Evanson Street and Preston Avenue.
The co-op'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 is pet-friendly and smoke-free.
In mid-June, 2020, the Canada Green Building Council advised OGHC that our development at 200 Arlington has been awarded LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver certification. No other Canadian housing co-operative has been certified at or above LEED Silver certification. Click here for more.
OGHC achieves fundraising goal: raises over $300,000 to support affordability and accessibility
Thanks to generous donations from OGHC Members and Friends, faith-based organizations, and our consultants, and indirect support from The Winnipeg Foundation, OGHC has raised over $200,000 to ensure that very-low-income households can enjoy the benefits of living in our co-operative community.
Moving Stories, a collection of stories, poems, collages, drawings, journals, and miscellany, has been published to mark the second anniversary of the opening of Old Grace Housing Co-operative two years ago. The project was co-ordinated and created by Fran Adelman, Alex Merrill, and Nicola Schaefer.
