Living in Newfoundland, the easternmost province of Canada, means enjoying life off the beaten path. The province's friendly residents include people of the English, Irish, French and Aboriginal descent. St. John's, Newfoundland, has one of the highest concentrations of writers, musicians, actors, and comedians on a per capita basis, according to the Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism website.

Memorial University of Newfoundland is the province's largest institution of higher learning, but there are also many other schools offering education based in a vocational trade, in nursing, or even the marine industries.
