Construction on the new Dundas Manor is expected to begin next year. It will take about two years to complete the new building. We want to thank everyone who is helping to make this dream a reality.
“We’ve been out and about talking about Dundas Manor and the need to build a new home for our residents and community,” explains CEO Cholly Boland. “We’ve also been working closely with the government, asking for more funding support due to the rising construction costs.”
The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care will fund some of the cost of the new home, but not all of it. That’s where our community comes in. Two years ago, Dundas Manor partnered with the WDMH Foundation to lead the community fundraising portion of this essential project.
“The Foundation staff and a small but mighty group of volunteers have been working hard behind the scenes,” notes Kristen Casselman, Managing Director of the WDMH Foundation. “So far, we’ve been meeting with those who we feel are interested in Long-Term Care and may be interested in making a significant financial investment. The response has been very positive. This important fundraising work will continue until the needed funds are raised.”
Our community cares about Dundas Manor and we are grateful for your support. For almost 45 years, Dundas Manor has been keeping families together – even though they are living apart. It is truly a gift to our community. Care close to home really does make a difference in our wellbeing, healing, and overall happiness. Together, we will build the new Dundas Manor.
If you are interested in learning more about the new home, but we haven’t reached out to you yet, please contact Kristen Casselman at 613-774-2422 ext. 6169. It would be wonderful to hear why the Manor matters to you. We can share the designs of the new home with you, have you into the home for a tour, and discuss how you would like to help.
