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.


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.

This year, we are celebrating 45 years of caring! 


On March 13, 2020, we received the amazing news that the redevelopment has been approved!

Redevelopment Updates

  • The Board of Directors has been working closely with residents, families, staff members, and the local community to plan for the new Dundas Manor. 

  • Barry Hobin Architects are working on the architectural drawings and have shared them with residents, families, and staff. The design team includes architects, planners, and an expert in senior-friendly planning. Dundas Manor is working with The Grove Long-Term Care Home in Arnprior to share expertise and costs.

  • 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 Outdated four-bed units will change to two residents per room.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. 

  • It's a Go! Planning Continues for New Dundas Manor. We’ve been out and about talking about Dundas Manor and the need to build a new home for our community. Thank you to The Ottawa Citizen for helping to share our story and highlight the incredible need for a new home for our residents and staff.

    In March 2020, the Ministry of Long-Term Care approved the new building. Then COVID-19 arrived, and planning slowed down – for good reason. Now we are moving to the next stage of planning and are working to raise the funds required to build the very best home. We need everyone’s help – starting with the provincial government and then all of you.
    We have partnered with the WDMH Foundation. In the coming months, you’ll be hearing much more about the Foundation’s fundraising plan for the new Dundas Manor. We know that our community will be behind us every step of the way. Together, we’re going to do this!
