Welcome to the Big Land, a vast, friendly place with tremendous promise and opportunity. Trophy- sized fish, giant caribou herds, world-class wilderness country, vast hydro, mineral and timber resources are all standard fare here. These and other assets provide the Town of Happy Valley- Goose Bay with a very attractive combination of opportunities for business growth and a quality of lifestyle opportunities unmatched anywhere. We are a "Can Do" community of nearly 9,000 people, where new business opportunities are never far away. Our entrepreneurs are taking on new challenges and partnering opportunities every day. Our people have a diverse mix of Aboriginal, European and other origins; collectively they have built a community with a positive, business friendly attitude and a vibrant arts and culture sector. We are strategically located with respect to global air routes that led to our origin as an aircraft base during World War II. Today, Goose Bay Airport is on the official NASA list of alternate Shuttle landing sites due to the quality of its infrastructure and prevailing weather conditions. Canadian Forces Base 5 Wing Goose Bay is a well established location for Low Level Flight Training by a number of Air Forces for the same reasons. Access to North American markets has been greatly via the Trans Labrador Highway.

This all season road connects us to Central North America. We are 1304 kilometers by air and 1838 kilometers by road northeast of Montreal. Happy Valley- Goose Bayis a regional service centre for the communities of coastal Labrador and a variety of industrial activities throughout the region. It is a strategic location for mining exploration and development in central and eastern Labrador, including the giant Voisey's Bay development and the Lower Churchill Hydro projects. These are some of the reasons why we say that Happy Valley - Goose Bay is "A Bright Light in Canada's North".
