Where in Canada is Newfoundland and Labrador located?
Newfoundland and Labrador (Engl. Newfoundland and Labrador, fr. Terre-Neuve-et-Labrador, from 1949-2001 only Newfoundland) is one of the Atlantic provinces in eastern Canada. The independent Dominion of Newfoundland was not annexed to Canada until 1949.
Newfoundland and Labrador is bordered by Québec to the west and the Atlantic Ocean to the east. It consists of a mainland part, which is located on the Labrador Peninsula, and the fjord- and lake-rich island of Newfoundland with its many smaller offshore islands. Newfoundland is the easternmost part of North America, closest to Europe, and is rich in historical and geographical features. Before the formation of the Atlantic, Newfoundland was close to Scotland, Scandinavia and Morocco, which have a similar orogeny and topology.
Together with the maritime provinces of Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador is counted among the so-called Atlantic provinces.
