Time to Grow | Cities and Towns

Quick Links

Newfoundland and Labrador offers everything from vibrant bustling cities, to peaceful and tranquil rural communities. Our province’s population generally resides along the coast due to the history of our origins as a fishing economy. Nowadays, our towns and cities are becoming as diverse as our population. Regardless of where you choose to settle here you’ll find some things remain consistent – friendly neighbours, clean air and water, quality community services and people focused on achieving a good balance in their lives.

The Capital is St. John's with a population of 99,000. There are several communities with populations in the 10,000 to 20,000 range including Corner Brook, Grand Falls-Windsor, Gander, Clarenville and Mount Pearl, which tend to act as service hubs for the numerous small communities known as "outports" around the coast. All Newfoundland communities are linked by a very good system of roads.
