Why choose tech in Newfoundland and Labrador?

World-class Innovation Ecosystem

Experience a thriving ecosystem characterized by a pioneering spirit, Newfoundland and Labrador (NL) is the home of the first AI unicorn in Canada and one of the largest acquisitions of a tech company in Canadian history — Verafin was acquired by NASDAQ for $3.6 Billion CAD in 2020. In addition, the NL tech sector raised more than $780 million in private investment over the last decade.

Supportive Community

Newfoundland and Labrador is characterized by a welcoming and collaborative spirit. Strong community ties, coupled with a tradition of support for innovation, create a nurturing environment for tech startups and established companies to thrive. Companies and entrepreneurs are supported by dedicated tech hubs in both urban and rural settings including the Memorial Centre for Entrepreneurship, Genesis, Co. Innovation Centre, Bounce Health Innovation, The Launch, the Health Innovation Acceleration Centre and the Centre for Research and Innovation.

Unique Quality of Life

Stunning natural landscapes are mere minutes away from urban centers. Whether hiking breaktaking trails, kayaking along the rugged coastline, or simply indulging in the serene outdoors, the accessibility to nature not only enhances quality of life but also fosters creativity and innovation. With short commutes, residents enjoy a more balanced lifestyle. Additionally, Newfoundland and Labrador boasts a vibrant cultural scene that enriches the community fabric and complements a diverse and accessible education system, all while offering more affordable housing than larger cities (the cost of buying a house in St. John’s is less than a third of buying a house in Toronto and half from one in Halifax). These combined factors attract top talent seeking a harmonious balance between professional success and personal fulfillment.

Top Talent

Our province is enriched with talent – with many software developers – and strengthened by partnerships with recognized educational institutions such as Memorial University, the Marine Institute, the College of the North Atlantic, Keyin College, Get Coding, and Eastern Academy. These institutions are pivotal in developing skilled professionals and facilitating cutting- edge research and development in tech from world-class engineering, marketing, and specialized tech talent.

Strategic Location

Positioned advantageously, Newfoundland and Labrador serves as a bridge between North America and Europe, thanks to its unique time zone that enables businesses to kick-start operations before much of North America wakes up, while also allowing for convenient communication with European counterparts. This geographic positioning is complemented by our extensive coastlines and rural areas, providing ideal settings for testing diverse tech applications in real-world scenarios.


Dive into our unique innovation strengths — OceanTech, Remote Operations, and HealthTech — each backed by a strong community and institutional support, which provides ample opportunities for groundbreaking advancements. Additionally, Newfoundland and Labrador serves as a nurturing ground for world-class companies innovating across various sub-sectors including FinTech, LegalTech, CleanTech, among others, where technologies such as AI and SaaS play pivotal roles in driving advancements. These industries, though not previously established locally, are finding fertile ground in NL to develop and deploy cutting-edge solutions.
