In follow up to the May 28th, 2019 Public Service Announcement; please see below:

The Town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay and the local RCMP are reaching out to the community to help raise awareness on ATV and Off-Road Motorcycle safety and regulations.

The Town works in partnership with the RCMP on enforcement of its Municipal ATV and Off-Road Motorcycle Regulations.


Violations and complaints received by the RCMP and the Town are mostly related to individuals operating ATVs and Off Road Motorcycles on municipal roadways, green spaces and not wearing helmets. Individuals who do not comply with the regulations could be subject to a $500 fine and possible impoundment of the ATV or Off-Road Motorcycle.

The Town and the RCMP also have representation on the Big Land Off Road Snowmobile Safety Committee, led by Labrador Grenfell Health. The committee focuses on the safe operation of snowmobiles, ATVs and Off Road Motorcycles year round.
