Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Marystown is a Canadian town in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador with a population of 5,436 as of 2006. Situated 306 km from the province's capital, St. John's, it is on the Burin Peninsula. Up until the early 1990s, its economy was largely based on shipbuilding, and it is due in part to this that the town experienced a population increase of 295% in just over a decade. The town was also dependent on the fish plant for employment.Though the shipyard still holds a presence in the town, residents have had to look elsewhere for economic subsistence in the last decade or so. The closure of the fish plants in Newfoundland has also had its hand in the decline in economic subsistence.show more
