The community of Postville

Postville is the smallest of the five Nunatsiavut communities with a population of 200 people (~90% identify as Aboriginal). Postville had a long history as a Hudson Bay trading post established in the 1837. The modern town of Postville was established in the 1950s, with the majority of residents moving to the community from the surrounding regions by the end of the 1950s. There is an abundant supply of trout, char, smelts, and cod, and numerous migratory birds and caribou populate the area, along with moose, black bear, foxes, wolves, and lynx.
