Why a new home?
Klinic has reached maximum capacity in our current location at 870 Portage Avenue; because of this, we sometimes experience challenges in providing efficient and effective services. The new site, slated to open June 2020, will offer increased space for mental health wellness groups, primary care, drop-in counselling and other group services to address community demand. While our current space is around 21,000 square-feet, Klinic’s new location at 167 Sherbrook Street will have around 36,000 square-feet between the first and second floor!
Returning to our roots
Our new location is centrally located in the West Broadway area, where Klinic has a long history.
After ongoing consultations with staff, clients and various stakeholders, the design stage is now complete, and construction has begun. We are thrilled to be working with ft3 Architecture on this project; a ‘go live date’ is currently slated for summer 2020.
3 great organizations, one building
Klinic will be joined by our partners in community health Sexuality Education Resource Centre Manitoba MB (SERC) and Manitoba Federation of Labour Occupational Health Centre (OHC). Both SERC and OHC will be tenants of Klinic in the new site.
SERC is a community based, non-profit, pro-choice organization dedicated to promoting sexual health through education. SERC employs approximately 30 staff in offices located in Winnipeg and Brandon, providing education and supports around healthy sexuality, with a focus on young people, the school system and newcomer communities.
The OHC is a non-profit community health centre that focuses on risks and injuries to workers. OHC provides injury assessment, health and safety training to workplaces and joint health and safety committees, aiming to make workplaces safer for workers through prevention and healing.
