ABOUT PORT AU CHOIX

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. 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.
