CMHC National Housing Strategy Program

We are currently reviewing CMHC’s new programs that provide low-cost loans and grants to encourage the construction of senior housing. We are anticipating a roll out in 2019 of new housing programs from Manitoba Housing.


Dan will provide his professional services in real estate marketing, MLS exposure and redirect interested seniors to our sales team to select their suite.
Dan can also provide our signed up residents with one on one guidance and information on selling their homes.

Occupancy Fee Reduction Plan (Optional)

Purpose: To provide members with an opportunity to lower their monthly occupancy fee. Many residents who are selling their homes, have to decide where to invest their surplus sale proceeds. Rendez-Vous Estates Occupancy Fee Reduction Plan provides an attractive option. Funds will be required no later than the resident’s move in date.

  • Residents interested in reducing their monthly occupancy fee, can request the optional Occupancy Fee Reduction Plan. The amount will be based on the invested amount @ the current Rendez-Vous Estates Mortgage interest rate. The calculated amount will be applied as a reduction to the monthly occupancy fee.


  • Reduced monthly occupancy fee
  • Return on investment much higher than offered by your financial institution
  • 100% refundable when you vacate the premises

Rendez-Vous Estates Mortgage Interest Rate @ 4.5%
Resident deposits $100,000, Calculation: $100,000 @ 4.5% = $4,500 / year
The resident’s monthly occupancy fee is reduced by $375 (See fee table)
