Where we are - Newfoundland and Labrador

Newfoundland and Labrador lies between the northern 46th and 61st parallels, with the bulk of the island portion being below the 50th parallel. The island is located in the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the larger Labrador portion is on the eastern part of the Canadian mainland. Newfoundland and Labrador is Canada’s most easterly province and its newest, having joined Canada in 1949. The province has an area of 405,720 sq. km – more than three times the total area of the Maritime Provinces (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island). The population is estimated to be 531,600.
