The St. John’s metro region is poised to benefit from a number of imminent mega-projects, such as the Hebron offshore oil development, the Vale processing plant in Long Harbour, and the proposed Lower Churchill hydroelectric project. This project will answer the question, "What do all these major projects mean for the region?” The primary purpose of this project is to inform. Specifically, it will provide information about anticipated impacts both on local and regional levels, discuss potential opportunities, gaps and capacity issues.
