Once operated by Marine Atlantic, the Bond and the Labrador ferry service was handed over to the province of Newfoundland and Labrador in 1998 by the Federal Government, this also included the Northern Ranger.
The Bond now operates once a week from Lewisporte, stopping in Carwright and then on to Goose Bay.
