A time to celebrate in Old Perlican
Historic Trinity Bay town to stage come home year; mark 40 years of incorporation
the past six or seven months.
According to the 2006 Census, Old Pelican has a population of just under 700 residents. Strong expects that number will swell considerably during the celebrations, making for a festive atmosphere that will bring delight to young and old.
“ There are even people that I went to school with coming back. And that wasn’t yesterday,” Strong joked.

The fishing industry is the economic heartbeat of the Town of Old Perlican. At the height of the season, the waterfront is an extremely
busy place with vessels from many regions of the province unloading their catches and several hundred people working at the plants.
Plenty to do
