Two new positions have been created in Grand Falls-Windsor to help the government of Newfoundland and Labrador effectively manage lands that were formerly owned by AbitibiBowater. A Crown lands management officer and a Crown lands management specialist will assist with inspections and other related management aspects of the recently acquired lands.

“We continue to work closely with many community partners to identify opportunities and priorities in the area, following the closure of the mill,” said Shawn Skinner, Minister of Innovation, Trade and Rural Development.
