About Us

Motivated by Fred Douglas values. Managed by property experts.

Gallery-Outside of BuildingFred Douglas Chateau (formerly Kiwanis Chateau) was originally developed by the Kiwanis Club of Winnipeg to provide a comfortable and affordable living alternative for the 55+ community. Fred Douglas Chateau is owned and operated by The Fred Douglas Society, a local leader in non-profit housing and programs for seniors. The property is managed on our behalf by Fred Douglas Management Inc.

In Manitoba and around the world, Fred Douglas 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, Fred Douglas Chateau, a 122-suite property in the heart of the city’s downtown.

Backed by the values of The Fred Douglas Society and the experience of Fred Douglas Management Inc., Fred Douglas Chateau is guaranteed to provide an outstanding living experience that delivers what it promises.

We’d love to show you one of our beautifully renovated suites and tell you more about the many benefits of living at Fred Douglas Chateau.

Now we only use our vehicle for visiting friends and purchasing groceries. We fill the gas tank three times a year, and this spring we didn’t even need an oil change. With underground parking, the vehicle has never been plugged in. We don’t even own a window scraper!
