Town of Winterland
Winterland is a small community between Garnish and Marystown on the ankle of the Burin Peninsula and is the only inland community on the Burin Peninsula.
In 1939 the government resettled people into Winterland from the islands around Placentia Bay. People also moved here from the Town of Garnish. In the Winterland area there were acres of land suitable for growing crops and raising livestock. Between the 1940`s and 1950`s the community started growing, and now it's the only community on the Burin Peninsula that farms. However, there is only one family in the area that still farms. The remaining people left the community to work in the surrounding area.

Digital Government and Service NL (DGSNL) is looking for feedback on possible changes to the Lottery Licensing Regulations, which regulate charitable gaming in Newfoundland and Labrador. These types of lotteries include bingo, ticket sales, games of chance, sports lotteries, break-open lotteries and Monte Carlo lotteries that are for charitable or religious purposes.
While we recognize that municipalities are not eligible for a charitable lottery license, there are organizations within the community that have done so. To assist in providing all organizations, and community members, an opportunity to participate in the consultations, we are asking municipalities to post a link to the questionnaire on their website.
