Co-op Living in Winnipeg’s North End
Bannerman Green Not-for-Profit Housing Co-op Inc. is a community-based initiative to create zero-energy housing in the St. John’s neighbourhood. Friends and neighbours in the area formed this co-operative in 2020 and secured a large lot at the corner of Bannerman Avenue and St. Cross Street as an initial site for the project.
After two years of planning, Bannerman Green Housing Co-op has contracted with an architectural firm, secured substantial funding from various agencies, and expects to begin construction within the year. We envision 12 units at 64 Bannerman, and a further 12 units in satellite properties (nearby homes that will undergo a deep retrofit).
Bannerman Green is an opportunity for friends and neighbours to contribute to the North End community through creating housing that exceeds current environmental standards, fits into the existing neighbourhood, and provides affordable, sustainable homes for families and individuals.

Participatory Decision Making
We acknowledge that we are on the traditional territories of the Anishinaabeg (Ojibway), Ininiw (Cree), Anishininiw (Oji-Cree), Dakota (Sioux), Dene and Inuit Peoples, and on the homeland of the Metis Nation, and that Bannerman Green is located in the heart of Treaty One Territory in what is now called the Province of Manitoba. Our water is sourced from the Shoal Lake 40 First Nation and our hydroelectric power is extracted from treaty territories. We dedicate ourselves to walking together in partnership with all people in a spirit and practice of reconciliation and collaboration.
