Rugged landscape. Prehistoric land formations. A beautiful backdrop, perfect for studying and research. Located along the Atlantic Ocean, in the northeast corner of North America, is Newfoundland and Labrador.
Every spring, thousand year-old icebergs drift south from Greenland, while whales migrate north. Combined, they provide sights and sounds not seen in many places around the world.
As the most easterly city in North America, St. John’s is the first to see the sun rise every morning and the first to ring-in a new year. Steep hills, colourful houses, and local entertainment help make us a world-renowned city. Plus, with a variety of parks, gardens, hiking trails and walking trails you never have far to go to explore something new.
Meet Callum Sizer, an Australian native who completed high school in China and wanted to continue to study abroad for his bachelors degree. He chose Canada as it was similar in culture to Australia, yet still offered him the chance to travel the world. Callum likes how St. John’s is small, yet vibrant, “the city has a real charm to it.” From his place it’s only a 20-minute walk to the university or downtown.
