The Long Harbour Development Corporation (LHDC) is a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to the task of maximizing the business development and employment opportunities associated with the construction and ongoing operations of the multi-billion dollar Vale nickel processing plant at Long Harbour Newfoundland.

LHDC’s aim is to create an “open for business” environment that encourages the recruitment, retention and growth of commercial enterprises to broaden the economic base of the community of Long Harbour — Mount Arlington Heights (LH-MAH) for the benefit of all of our residents. The Corporation provides advice, information and support to businesses wishing to develop, grow, expand or set-up shop in Long Harbour.

LHDC serves as a first point of contact for firms seeking to invest in Long Harbour. The Corporation is available to assist businesses wishing to service Vale’s nickel processing plant, or form joint ventures with local companies. The LHDC is designed to inform and encourage prospective businesses to consider Long Harbour as a viable location for economic growth.

LHDC has undertaken a number of initiatives to advance both the residential and commercial capacity of the community. Middle Pond Ridge sub-division is ideally located along the shores of beautiful Middle Pond. This 35 lot sub-division is available to accommodate those seeking to establish roots in an idyllic surrounding with all of the benefits of a growing rural community.

A new Hyrodmet Industrial Supply Park (HISP) will be available soon (2014) to meet the needs of the business community wishing to establish operations in close proximity to the multi-billion dollar industrial complex facilities in and around Placentia Bay including the Bull Arm project, Husky Energy project, Husky Energy project at Argentia, the Oil refinery at Come-by-Chance and the Vale nickel processing plant in our home community. LHDC is centered on your success.

A volunteer Board of Directors oversees the strategic direction of LHDC. The Board is comprised of representatives from the town as well as non-elected residents of the community.
