Fun Fact: Newfoundland and Labrador Etymology

Fun facts about Canada

The province of Newfoundland and Labrador in Canada is made up of two parts. The island of Newfoundland comes from a translation of the Latin “Terra Nova” which means “new found land” obviously. Labrador is named in honor of João Fernandes Lavrador, a Portuguese explorer who visited the area in 1458.
