Western Labrador is an area of big business! The twin mining towns of Wabush and Labrador City are homes and products of two very big mining companies. Wabush Mines in Wabush and the Iron Ore Company of Canada in Labrador.
Churchill Falls down the road 239 kms was once the largest hydroelectric project in the world and today remains the world's largest underground power plant lighting up the eastern USA seaboard.
I have traveled to Wabush / Labrador City many times for work and many more times to Churchill Falls to visit my inlaws over the years so I know both regions fairly indepth.
Due to the VT database, Labrador City and Churchill Falls don't have seperate pages. For the purposes of navigating my site, Wabush and Labrador City are the same both towns are side by side. All of my Churchill Falls tips are in sequential order under "Off the Beaten Track".
Labrador West is one of the great industrial regions of the Newfoundland and Labrador province. From iron ore to hydro development in Churchill Falls many people don't realize what is happening there.
I always enjoy my visits. The people are great and its one of the premiere spots in Newfoundland and Labrador to hold a conference.
Be warned as well in January it can reach temperatures such as -50. That is cold!!!
