The Lower North Shore stretches from the Natashquan River to the border of Labrador. It consists of 15 small villages, each with its own distinct character. Many are still not accessible by road. Years of isolation allowed each village to develop variations in traditions, architecture and even accents. The population was once scattered across more than 70 tiny fishing posts. Today’s consolidated villages range in population from 50 to almost 1000 residents.
