Little Bay Islands Relocation Date Announced

Residents of the Town of Little Bay Islands and the Provincial Government are moving forward with the relocation of the community.

One hundred per cent of the permanent residents, who are eligible to relocate, have now signed option agreements for financial relocation assistance.

With this support for the Community Relocation Policy, the Provincial Government is now finalizing legal documents that will advance financial assistance to the permanent residents of Little Bay Islands.

The Provincial Government will provide $8.7 million for the relocation that will result in savings of approximately $20 million over 20 years.

The town has chosen a relocation date of December 31, 2019.

All provincial services will cease shortly after that date.
