Aven Cottages, are specifically designed to care for people living with Alzheimer’s and related dementia. Funded by the Government of the NWT and the Department of Health Social & Services, this facility was built in conjunction with partners of Diavik Diamond Mines Inc. and Nahanni Construction Ltd.

Avens was established to meet the needs of the growing number of soon-to-be retired miners and prospectors who would need support to live out their retirement years in Yellowknife.

Unique Aspect: This facility was built in extreme climate conditions and due to a high population of aboriginal people in the Northwest Territories, the project team needed to be sensitive to native customs and culture through design and construction of the facility.
