We are so grateful to everyone who is helping to make our dream a reality!

Our Past and Our Future


Dundas Manor opened on April 5, 1978, with 60 beds. Three additions have brought the home up to 98 beds. On February 1, 2012, Rural Healthcare Innovations (RHI) purchased Dundas Manor from the Alguire family. RHI is the board of directors that oversees the home. This year, we are celebrating 45 years of caring!


On April 28, 2015, Dundas Manor applied to the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care for approval to build a new home. Once approved, construction is expected to take two years. On March 13, 2020, we received the amazing news that the redevelopment has been approved!

It's A Go!

  • Construction is underway - with bulldozers and dump trucks on-site!

  • On June 14th, 2023, the WDMH Foundation launched the Expanding the Circle of Compassionate Care campaign. Join in the magic! For details, visit www.dundasmanordream.ca

  • Frecon Construction - a local firm located in Russell - has been chosen to build the new Dundas Manor. Read more

  • On December 15th, 2023, the official groundbreaking ceremony was held. Read more.

  • The new Dundas Manor will transform the look and feel of the residence to create a truly home-like environment where we can also welcome thirty additional residents. The new home will improve quality of life with more accessible space, more efficient preparation areas, wider halls, and larger windows. Outdated four-bed units will change to two residents per room. As well, the new home will address the need for greater individualized and resident-directed care.   

Some Sneak Peeks!
