Fundraising Committee Seeks Personal Care Home Name Recommendations from Winnipeg River District Residents

Name submission deadline is November 30

The fundraising committee for the new regional personal care home is turning to community members to provide suggestions for the facility’s name.

“It’s our hope that by turning to the communities involved to identify a name, we’ll remind people that this personal care home is for all residents and families in the Winnipeg River District. We’re looking for a name that reflects community spirit behind this project,” said committee member Clay McMurren of Pinawa.

Names can be sent to local town or RM offices or be emailed to You can also phone suggested names into the Interlake-Eastern RHA toll-free line at 1-855-347-8500. The deadline for name submissions is November 30. Please be sure to provide your name and phone number so you can be contacted in the event that your name is chosen.

The fundraising committee, created in 2012, has already raised close to $20,000. Funds generated by this committee will be used to enhance care home amenities currently not funded in the construction plan such as outdoor walkways, gardens and chapel enrichment. People can support fundraising efforts by purchasing a 50/50 ticket available at the Lac du Bonnet and Pinawa town offices and the Lac du Bonnet personal care home. The draw will be held December 7 at 7:30 p.m. at the Pinawa Community Centre.

MHPM Project Leaders has been hired to help complete the initial site investigation for the new care home. MHPM took the lead in securing Stantec Architecture and they will continue to manage the personal care home’s project team during the upcoming design phase.

The new personal care home will have 80 beds in a 62,000 ft2 facility, increasing the number of beds in the current personal care home by 50. The new facility will serve the Winnipeg River District and provide much needed housing for older adults in the area.
