Developing Business in Harbour Grace

Welcome to Harbour Grace. Let yourself in.

Located an hour outside of St. John’s, Harbour Grace is a beautiful waterfront community steeped in over 500 years of history. With its unique aviation legacy, Registered Heritage District, and cultural landmarks, Harbour Grace is one of Newfoundland’s must-see tourist destinations, with excellent potential for further growth. Today, the town’s industrial and mercantile history lives on through its advanced boat building and fabrication businesses. Recreation and sports play an important part in our community, too, with several famous Newfoundland athletes calling Harbour Grace home. Our new Danny Cleary Harbour Grace Community Centre offers hockey, recreational programming, a fitness gym, and a multipurpose community space. Additionally, Harbour Grace has several trails, greenspaces, community gardens, soccer pitches, marinas, baseball fields, lakes, and parks for residents and visitors alike.
