Town of Baie Verte | The Heart Of A Town Lies Within its People
Welcome to the Town of Baie Verte
The town of Baie Verte is located on the northeast coast of Newfoundland & Labrador on the Baie Verte Peninsula in White Bay. Our base population is 1,370 residents.
With an amazing array of attractions, small businesses, and industrial enterprises, the town of Baie Verte has all of the modern conveniences. Baie Verte is one of 42 communities that comprise the Emerald Zone - which is located in the North Central portion of Newfoundland.
Baie Verte existed as a small community in the late 1800's and early 1900's. It remained a small village until the discovery of asbestos and other ore bodies of copper, lead, zinc and gold in the mid-1950s when the town underwent major expansion. Bowring Brother's steamers came to the area in the 1950s to transport the ore found here. Baie Verte became incorporated as a town in 1958.
