Canada’s most easterly province, with a population of just over 500,000, Newfoundland would provide an aspiring physician the chance to practice medicine in a more rural-like setting. Newfoundland experiences a wide range of weather due to its geographical location and is a tourist attraction for its unique natural beauty.
