Things to Know
Communications Services
Basic communications are modern and reliable throughout most Labrador communities. It should be noted however, that cellular phone service is available only in some areas:

  • Labrador City and Wabush in Labrador West
  • Churchill Falls
  • Happy Valley-Goose Bay and other nearby communities in Upper Lake Melville Region
  • Communities in the southern part of Labrador Coastal Drive (L'Anse au Clair to Red Bay). Due to the terrain, service within this area can be intermittent.

For safety and security reasons most travellers will use the Free Satellite Phone Loan Program while travelling the Trans Labrador Highway.
Internet Access
DSL Internet services are available in most larger communities, and in many accommodations. Motels will frequently provide wireless access within their premises.
Public access computers are available through local public libraries and most Visitor Information Centres in Labrador will also have public access computers.
Print Media
There are three weekly newspapers available in Labrador; the Labradorian, the Northern Pen and the Aurora.

There are also two Labrador magazines: Them Days and Labrador Life.
