The beautiful and historic City of St. John’s is positioned on the edge of Canada, surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, from which we draw not only our sense of place but also our position in the global economy.
Boasting one of the highest concentrations of specialized marine companies operating in one area in the country, St. John’s is also one of the best places in the world to receive an advanced education in the study of marine/oceans engineering and an ideal home for anyone drawn to an adventurous lifestyle. Where else in the world offers you the opportunity to work on cutting edge innovations during the day and spend your evenings on the edge of the best coastal trails the world has on offer?
St. John’s is an edgy, innovative and modern city, ripe with opportunity for future generations… and we’re no longer interested in being one of the world’s “hidden gems”. We’re taking a stand and taking our place on the leading edge of the world’s ocean technology centres.
That’s what Advantage St. John’s is all about. Newfoundlanders and Labradorians love to tell a good story, and this one is too good not to share with the world’s investors, entrepreneurs and youth.
St. John’s metro is the epicentre of the national ocean innovation ecosystem – the home of Canada’s Ocean Supercluster. With success stories like the city’s own Verafin leading the pack, we’re on the map as a place to watch and a place to be for testing, launching and growing a tech enterprise.
Our city is artsy, creative and fun. It’s community-minded and increasingly diverse. It’s life on the edge of adventure… on the edge of discovery… on the edge of greatness.
Discover the St. John’s advantage. We can’t wait to share our story with you.
