Growing Great Places Together

Town of Bay Roberts, Newfoundland & Labrador -
2024 National Finalist

Bay Roberts is a charming seaside town with approximately 6,000 people located only 1 hour from St. John’s. Visitors can discover a unique blend of history, culture, and adventure. Enjoy our award-winning museum & art gallery located at our National Historic Site, the Cable Building. Hike through our Shoreline Heritage Trail, an 8km trail located in our east end. 

Reconnect with nature by visiting our Botanical Garden or our Goose Pond Eco Trail. Recently, the Town of Bay Roberts has seen considerable growth in our housing and economic markets. We are seeing many people who are planning on moving home or retiring from mainland Canada choosing to move to Bay Roberts due to our recreation, economic and cultural assets. National businesses are choosing Bay Roberts as their next location while they are expanding their operations. Businesses in our town in the fishery and food distribution industries contribute millions of dollars to the provincial GDP and our local businesses contribute millions of tax dollars to the provincial government as our main highway sees over 20,000 cars a day. 

We have placed a priority on the preservation of our history and culture, with a specific intention of expanding tourism endeavors. Our goal is to accommodate the growth of local industry while being deliberately attentive to environmental responsibilities. Our community is built on a strong foundation based on volunteer action, independence, and perseverance. Thus far, community pride is evident through the initiatives which have been completed and in progress.
