Justin Barbour was born in St. John's, Newfoundland. In his youth he played competitive hockey until moving away to Miramichi, New Brunswick, to suit up in the Maritime Junior A League for four years. Upon returning to Newfoundland, Justin completed a Bachelor of Physical Education and Bachelor of Education at Memorial University. During that time he played in the Newfoundland Senior Hockey League for seven years before moving away to Cartwright, Labrador, to teach K-12 physical education and science for a year. He is a provincial champion in high school hockey, AAA Midget Hockey, Men's A Ball Hockey, and he has won a Herder Memorial championship with the Grand Falls-Windsor Cataracts in 2015. Justin is an adventurer, teacher, writer, public speaker, and he runs a successful YouTube Channel that documents his expeditions. Since 2017, Justin has traveled over 2,500 kilometres in the wilderness of Newfoundland and Labrador, accompanied by his Cape Shore water dog, Saku. In 2018 he was sponsored by the Royal Canadian Geographical Society for an expedition in Labrador, and he wrote about it for Canadian Geographic upon his return. He has been asked to speak in places as far away as Ontario. Justin Barbour lives in Grand Falls-Windsor with his fiance', Heather, their malamute husky, Bear, and the famous Cape Shore water dog, Saku.

 Man and Dog: 83 Days Canoeing the Labrador Wilderness
Voyageur - Clarion Hotel Sat 3:30pm-4:15pm 
Voyageur - Clarion Hotel Sun 10:30am-11:15am 

In 2018, with support from Canadian Geographic, Justin and his dog Saku left the rugged coast of Labrador to begin a 1700km expedition through undisturbed wilderness. They would ascend difficult and dangerous rivers for over 350 kilometres, and paddle across the biggest lakes in eastern Canada. They portaged with black bears breathing down their necks and dealt with a raging early winter, the earliest to strike the region in almost 20 years. The route would pass through no communities and require the true bond of man and dog to help fuel them through the immense isolation and challenges. This talk will showcase the beauty of one of the world's last great wildernesses and inspire young and old.
