City of St. John's, Newfoundland & Labrador, Canada

St. John's is the place to be if you are interested in the eastern Canada oil play. As the most easterly city in North, St. Johnís is on the doorstep of the oil fields of the Grand Banks, and the vast potential of the Atlantic Margin reservoirs.

The presence of international oil companies in the area and over 350 supply and service firms, new infrastructure and identification as a City of Ocean Excellence, makes St. Johnís the main supply base for the growing Canadian offshore industry.

The offshore petroleum industry holds vast potential and is cause for optimism for the future. Newfoundland and Labrador now produces almost 50% of Canada's conventional light crude, enabling St. John's, to play an integral role in the industry.

Historically, the City gained prominence as a commercial trading harbour and international fishing port. Poised at the brink of the North Atlantic Ocean, St. John's is the heart of Newfoundland and Labrador's 17,000 kilometre coastline. The long maritime history of this distinguished port city stems from a way of life that has always been irrevocably tied to the sea. From this connection, we've drawn on our strength and skills to harness the ocean to its maximum potential - and that potential grows every day. From the fishery and offshore energy industry, to ocean technology and marine biotechnology, local companies have transformed St. John's from a mere port city to a City of Ocean Excellence.

As a World Energy City, St. John's recognizes the oil and gas industry as an important factor in present and future development, and works to maximize economic activity and benefits. The City of St. Johnís would look forward to opportunities to cooperate with other WECP cities in the area of inward and outbound trade missions.

For companies and families relocating, St. John's offers a stunning natural environment, quality educational and medical facilities, and affordable housing. St. John's is also recognized internationally for its rich cultural heritage and vibrant arts community.
