A High Standard of Living
The cost of living in Labrador West is among the lowest in Canada, yet our residents enjoy a high standard of living. Housing is affordable and the region has the advantage of low electrical rates. Groceries are reasonably priced, as well. The region also has the best retail shopping in all of Labrador with many national chains servicing Labrador City, Wabush, Churchill Falls, and other Labrador communities via the Trans Labrador Highway.
Medical and educational facilities are also excellent. Crime rates are among the lowest in Canada. Exceptional recreational facilities include an 18-hole golf course, an Arts and Culture Centre that regularly features international talents, world class X-country ski trails, alpine skiing, indoor swimming pool, skating rinks, gymnasiums, restaurants, bars, and taverns. The communities boast a high level of volunteerism, sports enthusiasts, musicians, artists, and artisans.
