Ramea is an Island Town of the southcoast of the province of Newfoundland, Canada. The island relied heavily on the offshore fishing industry until the government of Canada placed a moratorium on the Northern Cod fishery. The town is holding tough and the people have indured, although many of it's residents had to leave to seek employment in various parts of Canada. Although this is not the first time Ramea has came together since it's humble beginnings.
This year (1997) marks the 500th year since the island was first discovered by John Cabot in 1497. The province is Celebrating this milestone with the Cabot Celebrations. Ramea will be in full swing with these celebrations. Stay tuned and I'll try to keep you up to date.
