Port au Choix, Newfoundland and Labrador

The Town of Port au Choix is truly a paradoxical place. On the one hand, it occupies one of the most remote geographic areas in Canada on the island of Newfoundland’s beautiful Northern Peninsula. On the other, its place in history is as a crossroads for 5 peoples and their associated cultures across nearly 5000 years.

Explore the crossroads of 6,000 years of human history where the sea’s bounty drew Maritime Archaic, Dorset, Groswater and Beothuk people long before Europeans arrived. Discover the richness and rarities of vibrant cultures that lived off the land and from the sea, where seals on passing ice flows were hunted for food, shelter, and clothing. Explore one of North America’s most fascinating archaeological finds, amid a rugged coastline of unique limestone barrens, forests and bays.

Why have so many distinct cultures lived, traded, and worked here, stepping on the toes of one another across the timeline of history? Archaeological digs have revealed some of the answers, while other parts remain a mystery. That too is part of our paradox. Perhaps it is best to visit and find out some answers of your own.
