Some Interesting facts About Town of Winterland

Town of Winterland is the only inland community on the Burin Peninsula. 

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.

As a reminder, to enable the 9-8-8 mental health crisis number nationwide, 10-digit dialing will be implemented in Newfoundland on May 31st, 2023. 10-digit dialing will be mandatory for both local and long-distance calling.

This may affect the operation of equipment with pre-programmed numbers, including home security systems, lifeline equipment and other wireless devices.

We highly recommend updating the numbers programmed into these devices to include the full 10-digit phone numbers prior to April 4th, 2023 to ensure they continue to function properly. Special numbers such as 9-1-1 will still be dialed using 3 digits.
