A Bit About Us
Your Friendly Future
Thank you for your interest in Westman Lions Manor, a not-for-profit Life Lease housing complex for those aged 55+.
Life Lease provides the benefits of secure tenure but eliminates the responsibility of ownership. A life lease provides a lease for life in an apartment with all the perks of a condominium without the mortgage.
Westman Lions Manor is located on the corner of Victoria Avenue and 1st Street in Brandon, MB. It is within walking distance (or a short drive) to shops, restaurants, churches, and medical facilities.
Westman Lions Manor was made possible by the efforts of five Lions Clubs in the Brandon area. Their vision was to create a safe and secure independent living environment for residents that are 55+, situated in a convenient location.
The original building (Phase I) was built in 1989. It has 65 one-bedroom apartments and 63 two-bedroom apartments. There are 32 one-bedroom apartments in Phase I that are subsidized by the Province of Manitoba under Manitoba Housing's Rent Supplement Program. Eligible residents occupying these suites pay rent based on their personal income. The remaining suites are financed via the Life Lease method and are operated on a not-for-profit basis.
A new addition (Phase II) was built in 1999. It has 60 apartments and offers six layout variations, as well as the option of indoor parking.
