This is one of the Canadian CED Network’s CED in Manitoba Profiles Project produced 50 stories of Manitoba communities working to build fairer and stronger local economies, reduce poverty, and revitalize neighbourhoods.

Bread, perogies, and CED? Who knew? This story begins 30 minutes west of Dauphin in the small community of Grandview, Manitoba. In 1987, as part of a provincial housing project titled “Welcome Home,” seven people living with disabilities came home to live in Grandview from various locations throughout Manitoba.
