Unique. It’s the one word that sums up the culture of Newfoundland and Labrador. There really is no place like this anywhere else in the world. Imagine a people derived primarily from Irish, English and Scottish immigrants, mixed with volatile weather, a myriad of accents that differ from community to community, and a fondness for communicating with friends and strangers alike.
Contradictions abound. An easy pace of life, but a hard work ethic. Peaceful, unless you’re standing in the middle of your kitchen surrounded by raucous music and singing.
You’ll be amazed at the variety and quality of art and literature produced by the people who draw inspiration from this land. The culture bleeds into everything here. Embrace the lifestyle and the Newfoundland and Labrador culture will complement everything you do. It’s a perfect blend for life. Surprising, enjoyable, enriching and addictive.
