New Street Names and House Numbers

The Hamlet of Arviat is implementing a new street name and house numbering system. This system will replace the old house numbering systems and will come into affect in the summer of 2013. All roads are designated either a “street” (north-south roads) or an “avenue” (east-west roads) and are numbered in sequence.

This map is also available as a .pdf here: Arviat Street and House Number Map November 2013
