Welcome letter from Mayor


On behalf of Town Council of Wabana, I extend a warm welcome to all visitors, including new and prospective residents to our community. It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the Town of Wabana, Bell Island and share my excitement about living in an island community close to nature yet ready for new developments that are on the horizon.



"If you are concerned about an individual or business who you think is acting contrary to orders under the Public Health Protection and Promotion Act such as not self isolating after returning from out of province, please complete and submit the form found on the provincial website at https://www.gov.nl.ca/covid-19/public-report-form/"


Much is happening in our community; a new ferry scheduled to arrive in February 2016, a new “state of the art” Fire Hall,exciting tourism events, and this year we are delighted to be celebrating “Come Home Year”. In recent years we have been welcoming retirees back to our community. They want the rural lifestyle with nature at our doorsteps yet all the amenities that a 20 minute ferry ride allows.


The people of Wabana, Bell Island leave no opportunity unused to brighten up and show off their community through Festivals, Music, Gatherings and many more events. We invite you all to join us and share in celebrating this vibrant community living.


I believe the Town of Wabana is the best place in the world in which to live, work and raise a family. Together we can build an even better community!



 Mayor Gary Gosine
