The History of the Foundation

The Mosquito Creek Foundation is a management body that incorporated in 1995; it is comprised of 6 board members and approximately 40 staff (plus Alberta Health Services staffing). The Foundation is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to safe, secure housing of seniors located in the communities of Nanton and Stavley in the MD of Willow Creek, in southern Alberta.

Mosquito Creek Foundation owns and operates the Silver Willow Lodge in Nanton which was originally built in 1977. In 1984 the Foundation assumed management of Seniors Self Contained Housing at Kilmorie Place and Oxley Manor in 1995; both buildings are registered under the Alberta Housing Act.

An addition to the Silver Willow Lodge was completed in May 2009 and is classed as a designated supportive living facility (DSL) regulated by Alberta Health Services. This facility boasts nice one bedroom units and 21 studio rooms, bringing the total to 30 rooms and the building as a whole to 81 units.
