Construction Begins on Extensions to Labrador Correctional Centre


Construction has started on an extension to the Labrador Correctional Centre in Happy Valley-Goose Bay.


The extension will consist of three living unit extensions for a total of 18 cells to accommodate 36 incarcerated individuals. There will also be improvements made to the facility’s laundry, kitchen, and programming areas; and the addition of a medical suite.


The extensions will allow the option to house female and male offenders in Labrador, reducing the need for transports to other facilities on the island.


Construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2024.


The extension is expected to cost $8.2 million.
