Manitoba Organization: Convalescent Home of Winnipeg

Link to:
Presidents | Sources

Founded in 1883 as the Women’s Hospital Aid Society, incorporated on 18 March 1903 by a Special Act of the Manitoba Legislature. In 1906, the first Convalescent Home was opened on McDermot Avenue, operating there until October 1908 when it moved to 698 Elgin Avenue, the following year expanding into an adjoining house. In 1914, the Convalescent Home of Winnipeg was incorporated. In 1915, it moved to 855-857 Bannatyne Avenue.

In 1917, the Keeley Institute, a former home for alcoholics at 676 Jessie Avenue, was purchased and reopened as the Convalescent Home of Winnipeg. In 1965, the building was demolished and replaced with the present structure.
