Newfoundland and Labrador Province in e Canada, on the Atlantic Ocean, consisting of the mainland region of Labrador and the island of Newfoundland plus adjacent islands; the capital is St John's (in Newfoundland). Norsemen are believed to have landed on the coast of Labrador 1000. John Cabot reached the island in 1497. The region became a British colony in 1824. It remained apart from the rest of Canada until 1949, when it became the country's tenth province. The island of Newfoundland is a plateau with many lakes and marshes. Labrador has tundra in the n, and the cold climate and lack of transport facilities have hindered economic development. There are, however, valuable mineral resources. Timber is an important industry, and the Grand Banks is one of the world's best cod-fishing areas. Area: 404,420sq km (156,185sq mi). Pop. (2001) 512,930.
