In fact from the 1950’s until the dawn of the 21st century, dozens of thousands of workers built the monumental complex, one of the largest hydro-electric facilities in the world.

The tent village, named after one of the men who built the complex, invite guests to experience what daily life was like to the thousands of anonymous builders.

Don’t miss Arts & Tresors inouis boutique which offers some of the most beautiful and extraordinary examples of art objects, jewellery, Inuit and First Nations’ artefacts and other treasures. The owners of the gift shop will tell vacationers about the history, origins and legends associated with the artefacts.
