Where is Newfoundland?

Map of Canada

Newfoundland is a large island in the Atlantic Ocean off the east coast of Canada. Together with Labrador it forms one of the four Atlantic provinces of Canada. The provincial capital, St. John's, is located on the southeastern coast of the island. Just south of the capital is Cape Spear, North America's easternmost point.
