Government of Canada | Gouvernement du Canada
Discover Canada: a country as diverse and unique as those who call it home. The second largest country in the world by total area, Canada boasts a vastness and variety of geography, ecology, vegetation, landforms, cultures and peoples.
City of St. John's
The City of St. John's is Canada's most easterly city and as such is the nearest point in North America to Europe. St. John's is the main financial and commercial centre for Newfoundland and Labrador, and the capital of the province. About one-third of Newfoundland's population lives in St. John's and surrounding area. The city extends out from a century-old urban core to include suburban developments, shopping centers and industrial sites, equipped with all the conveniences a growing, progressive city requires.
Parks Canada | Parcs Canada

Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society | Newfoundland and Labrador Chapter
CPAWS Newfoundland and Labrador promotes the systematic establishment of new terrestrial and marine protected areas and fosters effective management of existing protected areas in the province.

Government of Newfoundland and Labrador
Welcome to Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, the most easterly edge of North America.
This is where the sun rises first. Where Vikings landed over 1,000 years ago. This place is home to the oldest settlement and the oldest city in North America, but is the youngest province of Canada. A vast land, with a relatively small population, Newfoundland and Labrador has some of the friendliest people you'll ever meet. Here, you can immerse yourself in wilderness solitude one day and embrace a vibrant culture at the cutting edge of the contemporary western world the next. This is a land of rich history and natural wonders: stunning coastlines, breaching whales, icebergs, and some of the most incredible skyscapes you'll ever see. With a temperate climate, Newfoundland and Labrador is a perfect place to enjoy outdoor adventures like hiking and kayaking in the late spring, summer and fall, as well as sports like snowboarding, skiing and snowmobiling in the winter. From vibrant cities to quaint, historical outports, mountain ranges, rivers, waterfalls and winding coastlines, there are always fascinating places to see and countless things to do.
Ocean Quest Adventure Resort is Newfoundland and Labrador's only full service dive and adventure resort. We pride ourselves on dedication to three bottom lines: social, environmental, and financial. We contribute to our local communities through employment, patronage and the celebration of our unique culture and history. We are also intensely interested in protecting our environment. Without our unique natural resources, Ocean Quest could not survive. We are constantly revising the delivery of unique tourism product to educate, to remain non-invasive, and to correct wrongs that have already been inflicted on our beautiful province.
