Newfoundland and Labrador
Newfoundland and Labrador form the most easterly province of Canada. It is one of the ten provinces and three territories that make up Canada. King Henry VII of England referred to the land discovered by John Cabot in 1497 as the “New Found Launde," thus helping to coin the name of Newfoundland. Historically, Newfoundland was also home to unique varieties of French and Irish, as well as the extinct Beothuk language. In Labrador, the indigenous languages Innu-aimun and Inuktitut are also spoken.
A former colony and then dominion of the United Kingdom, Newfoundland gave up its independence in 1933, following significant economic distress caused by the Great Depression and the aftermath of Newfoundland's participation in World War I.
There are tons of wildlife watching, hiking, biking and kayaking opportunities in the stunning countryside. Start your day before daylight breaks at Cape Spear Lighthouse, the most easterly point on the entire continent, where you’ll be the first to see the sun peek over the horizon. Newfoundland and Labrador has a folk musical heritage based on the Irish, English and Scottish traditions that were brought to its shores centuries ago.
