The Labrador North Chamber of Commerce (LNCC) has postponed its keystone eventExpo Labrador, focused on major projects and economic development in the region. It was set to cause a challenging influx of people into the Town of Happy Valley Goose-Bay in the coming week, with over 400 participants.

The delay allows member businesses and individuals to continue to help with the response to threatening wildfires in the region, including aid for the ongoing displacement of hundreds of people from the remote Town of Churchill Falls, about 300 kilometres away by road.

“When we were alerted of the evacuation of Churchill Falls, the decision to postpone came rather quickly,” LNCC CEO Julianne Griffin told Atlantic Business Magazine, while continuing to work through a long list of notifications Thursday evening. The Expo was to host Premier of Nunavut Pauloosie Jamesie (P.J.) Akeeagok and a delegation from the territory, in addition to a long list of representatives from governments, associations and individual businesses.
