About Us

Motivated by Kiwanis values. Managed by property experts.

Gallery-Outside of BuildingKiwanis Chateau was developed by the Kiwanis Club of Winnipeg to provide a comfortable and affordable living alternative for the 55+ community. Today the building is managed on our behalf by Shelter Canadian Properties Limited.

In Manitoba and around the world, Kiwanis is known for its commitment to people, communities and quality of life. Nearly 8,000 clubs are working to improve social standards across the globe.

In 1987, this spirit motivated the Kiwanis Club of Winnipeg to develop Manitoba’s first Life Lease community, Kiwanis Chateau, a 122-suite property in the heart of the city’s downtown.

Kiwanis Chateau is one of 125 multi-unit rental, condominium, commercial and hotel properties managed in Canada and the U.S. by Shelter Canadian Properties Limited, a North American leader. In total, Shelter manages over 10,000 residential suites and in excess of 2.57 million square feet of commercial space, and is committed to ensuring the comfort, safety and satisfaction of every client and resident.

Backed by the values of Kiwanis and the experience of Shelter, Kiwanis Chateau is guaranteed to provide an outstanding living experience that delivers what it promises.
