Wabush - Newfoundland and Labrador

Route 503

Wabush is a small town in the western tip of Labrador, known for transportation and iron ore operations for over three decades (1967 to 2007).

Wabush is the twin community of Labrador City and at its height, the region boasted a population of just over 22,000 (late-1970s). Most residents continue to work in the nearby mines: Wabush Mines[3] and Iron Ore Company of Canada.

While remote, the town does contain modern amenities. There is a grocery store, bowling alley, ice arena, and several bars and restaurants. In nearby Labrador City, there is a modern indoor shopping centre which includes a Walmart.

Air transportation needs for the twin communities are served by Wabush Airport and seasonally by Wabush Water Aerodrome.
