“Of course, Churchill Falls is not merely the site of one of the great modern marvels of engineering and power production. It’s also home to a vibrant community. The men and women operating the generating station, as well as their families, live in the town, located approximately 240 kilometres east of Labrador City and 285 kilometres west of Happy Valley-Goose Bay. The population is about 650. The community revolves around the Donald Gordon Center, a unique town centre that features a school, hotel, restaurant, theatre, library, bank, grocery store and post office. Residents enjoy the modern living accommodations and recreational facilities on hand at the Center: an indoor swimming pool, arena, gymnasium, curling rink, ski-hill, cross-country ski trails, playground, baseball diamond, youth centre and community center are all available. Thanks to its people, Churchill Falls has become a true home. Now entering its second generation of workers and family, it continues to thrive.
