In 2012, upon hearing that the Province of Manitoba had no further use for the former site of the Old Grace Hospital at 189 Evanson Street in the Wolseley neighbourhood, a group (many of whom were Wolseley residents) began meeting to consider what opportunities might make sense for the development of the land. Their collective vision was a non-profit housing co-operative. And so, the work began. It would be upwards of six years before the first wave of co-op members would occupy their new homes in the Old Grace Housing Co-operative. Construction is slated for completion in early 2018.
These pages chronicle the work of the founders and the growing community of members.
