Newfoundland & Labrador (NL) is the easternmost province of Canada located on the north-eastern corner of North America, also known as the Atlantic region. The province consists of two main entities, the island of Newfoundland and mainland Labrador (located northwest of the island). The Strait of Belle Isle separates the province into these two geographical divisions.
The province also includes over 7,000 tiny islands.
Newfoundland and Labrador became the tenth province to enter the Canadian Confederation on March 31, 1949, as Newfoundland. On December 6, 2001, an amendment was made to the Constitution of Canada to change the province's
official name to Newfoundland and Labrador.
There is 29,000 kilometres of coastline sprinkled with inlets, coves, and bays with historic towns and fishing villages, complete with spectacular views.
Most of the province's population resides on the Island of Newfoundland. Newfoundland and Labrador's capital city and largest city is St. John's and is Canada's twentieth-largest Metropolitan Area. For additional information on Newfoundland & Labrador check out our new NL Facts page.
