This is where the sun first rises. Where the continent’s first European settlement was created. Where the oldest North American city first came to life. And where you’ll find yourself at home.
Welcome to Newfoundland and Labrador. Here, you can experience a solitary wilderness one day and immerse yourself in our vibrant culture the next. It’s a vast land of rich history and natural wonders: stunning coastlines, breaching whales, and some of the most incredible seascapes you’ll ever see. It’s a land of hundreds of different dialects, where language and laughter often go hand in hand.
As the continent’s closest point to both Europe and Africa, Newfoundland and Labrador is also the gateway to North America. Our unique time zone (GMT-3:30) makes this the perfect place to conduct business and work from (as your colleagues in other cities may soon discover).
