About

I started this website as a hobby when I lived UpAlong. I love Newfoundland and Labrador and I wanted a way to connect with ‘back home’. Well, I somehow managed to make my way back to da Rock (I now teach Marine Engineering Systems Design in St. John’s), but I decided to keep the website alive because I know that there are 1000’s of expat Newfoundlanders and Labradorians who are still living UpAlong.

A couple of the features on this website that I use daily are the News, Radio, and Games. If you have any ideas to help improve the website, please let me know: kevin@upalong.org.

I hope that you enjoy my little website!

Mission & Goals

Out migration is an extremely serious problem that has been negatively affecting Newfoundland & Labrador for decades. As the title and name, “From Newfoundland and Labrador to… UpAlong”, implies, this site caters to those of us who had to leave our province. If we can stick together, even virtually, then maybe we’ll feel just a little bit better about being away.

The goals of this site are to give Newfoundlanders and Labradoreans who live away from our province a place to go that feels like home, reunite with old friends, have some fun, and, hopefully, allow them meet others from the province who live in their area.

Who knows, maybe someday you’ll get to return to our beloved province to live… we can all hope and dream.
