Assisted Living Facility under construction

Our community’s long-term care facility will not be able to handle the anticipated need as our population continues to age. Presently there is no provincial or federal funding for this type of facility and a community survey determined there is a significant need for an assisted living facility in Boissevain. Southwest Senior Housing Inc is a not-for-profit community owned corporation. The proposed facility will be run by a board of directors and ownership of the facility will remain in the hands of the stakeholder community Boissevain-Morton, and ensure accountable and stable governance.

The Southwest Senior Housing group has spearheaded this project to ensure job growth, facility ownership, economic development and most importantly to ensure our elders can remain in their community. The projected cost for this complex is $6.7 million and the business plan is based on the community fundraising $2 million to secure financing. In December 2019, Southwest Senior Housing reached their initial fundraising goal of $2 million! As a non-profit organization, fundraising will be ongoing to keep the facility affordable and sustainable for our seniors.

In summer 2019, Southwest Senior Housing Inc. and the Municipality of Boissevain-Morton issued a Request for Proposal for Design Build Services, resulting in Gordon Turner Construction being the successful proponent. Construction of the new facility began spring 2020, with anticipated completion in fall of 2021.

As of January 2020, SSHI is accepting tenant applications. Download Application Form or contact the Municipal Office.
