The Move

Top of page

Under the Newfoundland government's program to relocate outpost communities in growth centres that provide better employment opportunities, school and health services, some families chose to take their homes with them. This film shows how the Rumboldt family home was towed by sea and overland to its new location in Port au Choix, and discusses what changes the move will bring.
