Newfoundland and Labrador

Newfoundland and Labrador’s main industries are centered around natural resources, particularly oil and gas, mining, and fishing. The province’s offshore oil reserves and hydroelectric power generation play a significant role in its economy. Mining includes extraction of minerals like iron ore, nickel, and copper, while the fishing industry focuses on cod, shrimp, and crab. Working conditions vary: offshore oil platforms demand specialized skills and can involve extended shifts, mining involves both underground and surface work, and fishing often involves challenging conditions at sea. The rugged landscape and maritime climate shape the industries and working conditions in this province.
