A people as varied and colourful as the land
Labrador has a population of approximately 28,000 people (census 2001).

Approximately one third of the population lives along Labrador's 7,886 km coastline, while one third live in the Lake Melville Region, and another third live in Labrador West.

Labrador has five Regional Economic Development Zones which reflect fairly accurately the climatic, cultural, historical and economic differences in the regions.

There are four distinct and separate cultures in the region, the Inuit, the Innu, the Metis and the Settlers. In Labrador, the Innu, Inuit and Metis are referred to as aboriginal people.

Labrador also has a French presence in Labrador West and the Straits area, due to its proximity to the province of Quebec.
