Gateway to Labrador Visitor Centre
The Gateway is a restored turn-of the century church that has been re-purposed to serve as a welcoming centre and a visitor information centre. On display is an exhibit on the "People of Labrador" that highlights places to visit and gives insight to the present day cultures of Labrador Coastal Drive. An actual artifact collection from a nearby Jersey Room, L'Anse Au Cotard is of great interest, as is a reproduction of a Thule harpoon! Internet access is available here.

The offshore lines appearing in the map above which purport to delimit the offshore area of the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador have no legal effect. Apart from the boundaries established pursuant to the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Atlantic Accord Implementation Act, which include the line established pursuant to the 2002 award of the arbitration tribunal concerning the delimitation of portions of the offshore areas between Newfoundland and Labrador and Nova Scotia, there are no agreed boundaries between the offshore areas of Newfoundland and Labrador and the Government of Canada, the Provinces of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island or Quebec or the Nunavut Territory, and no such boundaries have been established under statute, regulation or agreement. The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador has made these facts known to Google.
The Gateway is a beautifully restored early 20th century church. In addition to visitor information, a series of interpretative panels, art pieces and artifacts makes the Gateway a definite must see - for all visitors to Labrador Coastal Drive. Panels with beautiful photography relate the story of the people of Labrador from the First Inhabitants who arrived in Labrador some 9000 years ago to present day settlers, gardens / community parks, geology and fossils, lookout / viewing point.
