The Public Policy Research Centre (PPRC) was commissioned by the Department of Transportation and Works (DTW) to undertake a review of the marine transportation system serving isolated communities on the coast of Labrador. This Study began on November 26, 2004. The work was to be completed in two phases with an interim report pertaining to Phase I, dealing with the short-term period 2004 to 2006, to be submitted on February 15, 2004 and a final report on May 15, 2004 (initially March 31, 2004) dealing with the longer-term and particularly the period after interconnection of the Trans-Labrador Highway (TLH) between Central Labrador and the coast (known as Phase III of the TLH). The constraining factor for Phase I was the multi-year contracts currently in place for the existing fleet and terminals. The scope of the work was to examine the options available to service the anticipated transport demand of isolated communities on the coast of Labrador, for both freight and passengers. This was to be done through a financial and economic analysis of each option and a comparison of the benefits and costs associated with each. This includes total costs as well as the relative components borne by the Government and the end users. The Terms of Reference call for the PPRC to recommend the preferred marine transportation option and the associated terminal configuration.
