Mayoral Message

On behalf of all residents, staff and members of Council, I wish to extend to you a very warm welcome to the municipality of St. Lawrence and to our website.

St. Lawrence is located on the southeast corner of the Burin Peninsula in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. The municipality has a current population of 1397 residents. Our town has a rich history in mining and fishing. We are also focused on building sustainable development in tourism by exploring our natural and historical resources.


From quality healthcare and education, to a myriad of recreational opportunities, we offer a variety of services to our residents and visitors. We are proud to be the Home of the Laurentian Soccer Club, as well as being referred to as “The Soccer Capital of Canada”.


Our residents possess a strong sense of community pride, engagement and volunteerism. Our identity is strongly rooted in our people, our surroundings and our unique history. We pride ourselves in being a safe place to raise a family - community matters here.


As Mayor, I am proud to serve you and in unison with our Council and staff, continue to work hard to make St. Lawrence a great place to live, work and play. I invite you to browse our website and discover what our town has to offer.
