Canada’s easternmost province sits on the Atlantic coast. Newfoundland and Labrador is also Canada’s newest province and St. John’s, the capital, still gives off a small-town vibe. The people here have strong ties to their history and may be the friendliest among Canada with their hospitality and neighborly attitude.
