Sod turning ceremony on July 1, 1992.

The North Renfrew Long-Term Care Centre opened in 1994 following 2 years of construction and program development, led by the North Renfrew Health and Social Planning Committee. The development of the ‘hub model’ for seniors care was funded by the Ontario Ministry of Community and Social Services, Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Recreation and the Ministry of Housing. The Government of Canada provided funding through the Ontario Ministry of Housing via Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation. Local funding was provided by the 4 municipalities comprising North Renfrew County at the time: the Town of Deep River, the Village of Chalk River, the Municipality of Rolph, Buchanan, Wylie and Mackay and the United Townships of Head, Clara and Maria. Over 1 million dollars was generously donated and fundraised by local residents and businesses.

Today, the programs and services provided by the North Renfrew Long-Term Care Centre are funded, in part, by the Champlain Local Health Integration Network, the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, the County of Renfrew and resident and client program fees. Large capital projects are funded by the generous donations received from individuals, businesses and fundraisers.
