One of the largest islands in the world and the most easterly province in Canada; Newfoundland and Labrador is home to one of the oldest settlements in North America, St John's, which became Canada's first incorporated city in 1785. Though Newfoundland and Labrador was first explored by John Cabot in 1497 it didn't join Canada until March 31, 1949.

 

The island of Newfoundland has no snakes, skunks or groundhogs so come Groundhog Day Newfoundlanders watch out for black bears instead. Moose are also not native to the island; over a hundred years ago six were introduced to the island paradise and have since then colonized the island with over 100 000 individuals.
