The economy depends heavily on fishing and sealing. While sealing has done well in recent years, the groundfishery remains poor. Richmont operates a gold mine near King's Point, and mineral exploration continues in the area. The district has voted Tory since 1982, with the exception of a by-election. The district's borders shifted slightly south and west in the new redistribution, taking in small parts of the Humber Valley and the former Grand Falls-Buchans districts.
