The Columbus Centennial House is built on the banks of the Red River and adjoins a seniors drop in centre complete with restaurant, licensed lounge, and banquet facilities.
The Manitoba State Council of the Knights of Columbus is the sponsor of this non-profit housing cooperative.
Funding assistance to construct this 70 unit seniors housing project was secured through Canada Mortgage & Housing Corporation via the Index Linked Mortgage Program.
