Current focus project

The Newfoundland Resettlement program was probably one of the most controversial programs ever undertaken in Newfoundland which has touched the lives of many people. Those memories are still very fresh for many people. Let's say we work together to create an article that will rise to feature article status.

Here are some resource areas for reference.

  • Maritime History Archive
  • The Canadian Encyclopedia
  • Newfoundland Heritage
  • Community Listing at NGB
  • A site we can use for context as it has no references given
