Brandon Neighbourhood Renewal Corporation (BNRC)

The Brandon Neighbourhood Renewal Corporation
(BNRC) is a not-for-profit organization which is dedicated to improving
the quality of life for residents in Brandon’s core residential
neighbourhoods.

Through partnerships with a number of government agencies and
community groups and organizations, we deliver meaningful programs that
strengthen housing choices, improve recreational and leisure amenities,
build economic opportunities, strengthen community potential, and
create safe, attractive and inviting neighbourhoods. The BNRC is also a
key partner in the delivery of housing programs throughout the City of
Brandon.

BNRC is funded through a partnership arrangement by the Province of
Manitoba (via the Neighbourhoods Alive! Program) and the City of
Brandon. Since our inception in 2000, we have successfully facilitated
21 million dollars to Brandon’s core residential neighbourhood.


BNRC delivers an aggressive low-income energy efficiency
program that includes on-the-job training of community members who
do the retrofit work. BNRC’s other community development work,
funded under Manitoba’s Neighbhourhoods
Alive program
, includes a bicycle greenway, storefront
revitalization in the urban core, and partnership in an innovative
and ambitious project to create affordable housing in an abandoned
Massey tractor factory.
