The parish is also the site of a factory at Belfast Estate, where Dominica Coconut Products (renamed a few years ago to reflect its ownership under Colgate-Palmolive) operates.

The largest settlements are Canefield (where the island's second airport is located) and Mahaut. Another village in the parish, Massacre, is so-called because of the historic massacre of Dominica's indigenous people by European settlers. Cochrane, Springfield Estate and Pont Cassé (home of the island's central roundabout) are located in the interior.
