Golden Manor Redevelopment Moves to Next Phase 
The Golden Manor’s redevelopment plans were given the green light from Council last night to proceed to the Design Development phase.

Plans to redevelop the current 177-bed long-term care home have been on-going with great success. Schematic diagrams for the new building, which will add an additional 15 beds, are now complete and the next phase will bring further design development and redefining of the home’s rooms and facilities.

Inspiration for the rebuild has been drawn from a “campus of care” model, which provides seniors a range of housing options as they age. The location of the new and existing buildings are ideally situated to achieve this goal of having long-term care, assisted living, and affordable housing all centrally located around common pathways, gardens, and courtyards.

“We are extremely pleased with the progress so far,” says Golden Manor Administrator Carol Halt. “Just by looking at the preliminary schematic design, we can see a focus on a home-like atmosphere, room for socializing and engagement, space for programs and activities, and integration of infection prevention and control features.”

The redevelopment of the Golden Manor is a significant capital project for The City of Timmins. Throughout consultation with numerous agencies, community partners, and stakeholders, the focus has been on developing a larger facility that meets residents’ needs, improves accessibility, and is aligned with any future plans to redevelop the surrounding area to become a true “campus of care.”

Once the project is complete and meets all applicable conditions, the Ministry of Long-Term Care (MOLTC) will provide the City with a Construction Funding Subsidy (CFS), a per diem based on per bed per day, paid over 25 years to assist with paying down the cost to rebuild.

The MOLTC has also issued a notice of public consultation regarding Golden Manor’s redevelopment proposal. If you have any comments or opinions and would like to bring them forward, deadline is June 25, 2021.
