As a Canadian province, Newfoundland and Labrador is a stable and predictable location to operate. We have a strong rule of law, to protect private property and individual rights. Residents and their families benefit from public healthcare and a quality public education. We also have some of the lowest post-secondary tuition fees in North America.
With its modern amenities, world-class dining, and a vibrant cultural scene all minutes from pristine coastlines and woodlands, Newfoundland and Labrador offers the best of urban and rural living. Our cities are much smaller than major Canadian cities such as Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver, and we like it that way. If you’re seeking a new adventure and a better way of living, you’ll be at home in Newfoundland and Labrador. There are six national parks and over a dozen provincial wilderness parks to explore. The world-famous East Coast Trail offers stunning scenery and is accessible only minutes from downtown St. John’s.
Home ownership is still attainable in our province with some of the lowest home prices in Canada and North America. In fact, St. John’s has the highest rate of home ownership in Canada! The average price of a home is approximately $300,000, with many options below and above this point. Compared to the national average of $500,000, or $700,000 in Toronto, or $900,000 in Vancouver, home ownership in Newfoundland and Labrador is very affordable.
Many cities around the world and in North America have congested traffic and long commutes for many workers. Maximum commutes in our urban areas are 30 minutes, with most being in the 10-15 minute range. This means you will have more time each day for your family and leisure.
Our unique position on the eastern edge of North America allows travelers to easily go east or west for leisure and business. There are seasonal direct flights to London, England and Dublin, Ireland, along with many direct routes within Canada and to U.S. and Caribbean destinations.
