In the far northeast of Canada's Arctic territory, you find Newfoundland and Labrador. It is considerably more isolated than the more developed parts of Canada and therefore some of the expectations you might have for the rest of the country aren't true here. On the other hand, it does belong to Canada, so many of the general FAQs can be found at the bottom of our Canada page.
What is the internet access like in Newfoundland & Labrador?
Unless you are on a vessel that is equipped with WiFi, you should not expect to have consistent WiFi access, and many expeditions do not have internet access at all.
Can I use my cell phone while in Newfoundland & Labrador?
Unless you are in a developed part of Newfoundland & Labrador like a town and you have mobile roaming turned on, it is unlikely that you will be able to use your cell phone.
Do I need a power adapter/ converter?
Canada has 110V power with the same sockets as those in the United States. If you are traveling from another part of the world, you will need a power adapter/ converter to use the outlets.
What are the toilets like in Newfoundland & Labrador?
Canada has modern flushing toilets.
Can I drink the water in Newfoundland & Labrador?
It is safe to drink the tap water throughout all of Canada unless otherwise indicated.
