Grand Falls–Windsor


Grand Falls–Windsor

      town, central Newfoundland, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. It lies along the Exploits River and the Trans-Canada Highway, 266 miles (428 km) northwest of St. John's. Grand Falls developed around a newsprint and pulp mill built in 1909 by the Anglo-Newfoundland Development Company. There is a large hydroelectric plant at the falls that gave the town its original name. With adjacent Windsor (formerly Grand Falls Station), it is the commercial centre of the region and is a base for fishing (salmon and trout) and hunting (moose and caribou). Grand Falls and Windsor became one town in the late 1980s. Pop. (2006) 13,558.
