About us


Homes for the Senior Community

Lindenholm Ministries owns and operates two residential complexes. 885 Wilkes, Lindenholm Place and 895 Wilkes, Lindenlake Terrace.

The first phase of the real estate development (Lindenholm Place) was completed and ready for occupancy in July  1989.  It  was a 92 unit  development  located  on five  acres of property  in the Linden Woods  area  of  Winnipeg.  The  building  is  a 10  story  tyndall  stone  hi-rise  of  high quality construction, well  located,  fully  landscaped  and includes  a strikingly  attractive  amenity  and  pool annex.

The emphasis is on independent lifestyle within a caring Christian  community, and residents have a high appreciation for the philosophy of development, and operation, that has made this residential opportunity available.

The  second  phase was the addition of 20 "Tower" units attached to the original building. This brought the total number of units in Lindenholm Place to 112.

The third phase consists of a 32 unit Life Lease building (Lindenlake Terrace) located at 895 Wilkes Ave. This three story building boasts large suites, many large windows and beautiful views.  Lindenlake Terrace was ready for occupancy in 1998.

Park setting in the City!

Lindenholm Place was intentionally designed with an open, park like environment for the residents to enjoy. Large open  spaces, generous numbers of trees and a tranquil retention pond are what our residents look forward to. You can find us located at 885 and 895 Wilkes Avenue, just west of

Grant Memorial Church.

A Bit of Background

Lindenholm  Ministries Inc.  has been incorporated with  the mandate to develop Christian­ orientated ministries by, and for,  the seniors  of  today  and future  generations. There  are new courses to  be  charted   and  opportunities to  be developed. The Christian principles of stewardship and servant-hood must  once  again be raised as the distinctive forms of thought  and practice they once were,  before society became "Christianized" and then increasingly secularized.  This  is  not  a call to the monastic response of the middle ages, but rather  the modelling  of Christian  lifestyle  within  society that  was  characteristic of the New  Testament Church.

The characterization of  Lindenholm Place and Lindenlake Terrace as caring  Christian communities is the expression of a hope that  they  will  become  such. There  is no imposition of  thought  or  practice of  any kind  on those  who choose to take residence there. It is an opportunity, a conducive  environment in which the seeds of change  have  been  sown.  At their most basic, both facilities are modern,  attractive, secure, comfortable  places  for residents to  live  that rival  any other price-competitive options   within   the  City  of  Winnipeg. 

 At  their  best,  both facilities  will   be  all  of  that  as well as communities in which the residents will have the freedom and encouragement to exercise their intrinsic motivation to  serve  others  ahead  of themselves.     That  service   may  be  expressed   in  a variety  of different ways,  few  of  which  have yet been identified. Some will  likely  be a mixture  of personal and  group   actions,   formal   and  informal    activities,   from   the  very   practical   to  the philosophical,   from  the arts to the sciences,  from  the occasional  to the routine.  All of the activities are  to be initiated at  the  discretion of  the  residents,  in  an environment  of  true freedom.

Isaiah 46:4 New International Version (NIV)

Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he,

I am he who will sustain you.
I have made you and I will carry you;
  I will sustain you and I will rescue you.


Lindenholm Ministries originally offered three distinct types of Lease Agreements. The Leasehold Agreement, the Assignable Life Lease and the Non-Assignable Life Lease. Lindenholm Place is 100% occupied by Leasehold Agreements. Lindenlake Terrace contains a mixture of the three types of Lease Agreements.



Leasehold is a form of land tenure or property tenure where one party buys the right to occupy land or a building for a given length of time. As lease is a legal estate, leasehold estate can be bought and sold on the open market. Our units are frequently bought and sold on MLS.

A leasehold thus differs from a freehold or fee simple where the ownership of a property is purchased outright and thereafter held for an indeterminate length of time, and also differs from a tenancy where a property is let (rented) on a periodic basis such as weekly or monthly.

Until the end of the lease period (often measured in decades or centuries; a 99-year lease is quite common) the leaseholder has the right to remain in occupation as an assured tenant paying an agreed rent to the owner. This rent covers common area costs for ongoing operation of the building, and contributions to the Reserve Fund. Terms of the agreement are contained in a lease.



A life lease is a form of rental housing which is typically designed for tenants who are 55+. A life lease is a kind of written tenancy agreement. A life lease can be for the life of the tenant or for a specific term (e.g. 50 years). Under a life lease, a tenant pays an entrance fee for a rental unit. The tenant also pays rent each month to cover maintenance and other expenses.

When the resident moves out or the tenancy comes to an end, the Entrance Fee is refunded to the resident.

The Residential Tenancies Branch administers The Life Leases Act. If you have any questions about life leases, you can contact the Branch at: or by phone at 204-945-2476 or toll-free in Manitoba at 1-800-782-8403.
