Labrador City

"Land of the Hard-Working People"

Early in the 1960’s the Town of Labrador City was built to accommodate employees of the Iron Ore Company. Immigrants and workers came to the area with the hope of landing a job, but as years passed people didn’t want to leave. Families settled in the area, infrastructure began to took shape, and a community blossomed.¬†As decades have passed, people continue to flock to the area.

With a still-strong iron ore industry, work is available and living conditions are high. Labrador City is now an efficient, yet inviting small town; its people are industrious and committed to building business across the region. And while they’re not working, they enjoy a high standard of living seldom found in an area so remote. Truly the best of both urban and rural.

Wabush

"From the Earth We Prosper"

As Labrador City’s twin town, Wabush too grew from humble beginnings in the mining industry. A small collection of workers moved to the area in the mid-1950s to begin work in the iron ore mine: a daunting task for many, as Wabush and the entire region was essentially untapped wilderness. Conditions were harsh and entering and leaving the area was incredibly time-consuming and oftentimes dangerous.

As years passed, the community grew, infrastructure was established, more workers moved in, and secondary industries began to crop up. Today, Wabush contains most amenities that its residents need for daily life. And being less than 10 minutes from Labrador City, its residents can take advantage of everything the larger town has to offer. Together, the two towns form a perfectly balanced region of work and play.
