Regular maintenance and improvements are critical to provide the ideal environment for fitness and lifestyle medicine. The Wellness Institute continually reinvests in our facility to ensure a welcoming environment, state-of-the-art equipment and accessible and top quality amenities.
Most annual improvements are part of our ongoing replacement plan, developed as part of our plan to ensure our facility remains a sustainable as a self-supporting non-profit enterprise. However, with 20 years since construction of our award-winning facility, we are planning a multiyear reinvestment to take us through the next 20 years.

Therapy Pool Renovation & Enhancement
Funded by the Wellness Institute, Counsellor Devi Sharma, Old Kildonan, City of Winnipeg and the Province of Manitoba Community Places Program.

The pool re-opened in October 2016. Pool capacity is now 19 (four spots were added).
