Explanatory Note

The Salvation Army Grace General Hospital Incorporation Act is the Private Act authorizing The Salvation Army to operate the facilities commonly known as the Grace Hospital and the Golden West Centennial Lodge personal care home.  On April 1, 2008, the Grace Hospital was transferred to the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority, which will continue to operate the facility as a hospital.  To reflect that change, this Bill amends the Act to

  • change the title to The Salvation Army Golden West Centennial Lodge Incorporation Act; and
  • remove all references to the hospital.

The Bill also contains a few minor updates to the corporate governance provisions.
