Newfoundland and Labrador ~ Cod and Landscapes

Newfoundland and Labrador is the most easterly province of Canada, closer in fact to Europe, than Canada’s west coast. When the Italian explorer, John Cabot, brought news back to England, the king of England said it was the “New founde lande” and the name stuck. How do locals pronounce the name Newfoundland?

Labrador is a rocky triangular shaped part of the mainland, separated from the island of Newfoundland by the Strait of Belle Isle. Together, they make up the province of Newfoundland and Labrador.

Historically, the people of Newfoundland and Labrador live and work on or close to the Atlantic seas.
