West Broadway Community Organization is proud to announce that our offices have relocated to 545 Broadway, the former home of Klinic Community Health and an important heritage building that has played a definitive role in the character and consciousness of this community for over a century. Known historically as Wilson House, the building was vacant through the 1990s and became a rallying point for local residents who united to paint murals on its boarded windows and cut grass grown long by an owner committed to demolition. This modest act of protest and neighbourhood pride was a galvanizing moment for West Broadway; residents and other stakeholders empowered by this success began to organize and by 1997 the West Broadway Community Organization was founded. To buy this property on behalf of West Broadway, in this our 20th year as an organization, is a symbolic return to our roots, and an example of what is possible when a community of people work together. Klinic Community Health continues to be an invaluable partner and resource for West Broadway and we are grateful to inherit a building that has been modernized and maintained in impeccable condition for the past 13 years. Thank you Klinic!

We are grateful to the hundreds of local residents, businesses, organizations, institutions, facilities, landlords, and service providers who gave their time and perspective to help create a new Five Year Community Plan for West Broadway. Launched October 25, 2016 this plan will guide community stakeholders in efforts to preserve the things about West Broadway that we all appreciate and to change the things that need to be changed.

On behalf of this project, Westminster Housing Society submitted an application to Manitoba Housing for development funds earlier this year. We are eagerly awaiting their decision and look forward to providing further updates on this effort as soon as possible. In the meantime, in anticipation of development, WBCO can no longer support gardening efforts on this property and we ask for your patience as this important transition continues.

WBCO recently partnered with United Way and the University of Winnipeg’s Institute of Urban Studies (IUS) to develop a tool that can help organizations and individuals measure the overall quality and liveability of rental housing units. Housing Quality Index Tool was created as an easy-to-use assessment tool for gauging housing quality, specifically in rooming houses and single room occupancy long-stay hotels. Please follow this link for more information on this innovative initiative. WBCO and the IUS will be co-hosting a free training and information sharing session on the HQI tool in March 2016 (date TBA), please contact WBCO Housing Initiatives Coordinator, Leah Goertzen if you are interested in attending: email@example.com
