Newfoundland, the oldest of Britain's colonies, had originally been established because of the presence of the rich fisheries of the Grand Banks. The colony of Newfoundland was granted responsible government in 1855, it decided, in 1867, to remain outside of Confederation and to protect its status. The colony of Newfoundland joined Canada in 1949, and became its tenth province.

"St. Johns - The capital, commercial emporium and seat of government of Newfoundland. Of the origin of the town of St. John's, little can be said with precision. Its settlement was the natural result of its position, rather than of any direct plan of colonization. Almost immediately after its discovery by Cabot, vessels in great numbers frequented the island for the purpose of prosecuting the cod fishery, which was found to rival the mines of Mexico and Peru as a means of accumulating wealth. The greater advantages which would accrue in the prosecution of the fisheries from an actual residence upon the island, prompted the early settlement of those positions most favorable for the work, such as the headlands of the principal bays, and thus it was that Bay de Verds (sic), Portugal Cove, Trinity, Catalina, Bonavista, Twillingate and other places, came to be permanently inhabited. Among them St. John's would seem from the first to have occupied a foremost position. Its safety as a harbor and capability of defense made it the port of greatest resort, and it was here that Sir Humphrey Gilbert landed as early as 1583 when taking possession of the island by virtue of a patent from Queen Elizabeth. Even at that time there seems to have been no inconsiderable number of quasi-residents both British and Foreign. Sir Humphrey had brought out a large number of emigrants for the settlement of his Government, but his scheme ended most disastrously, and St. John's, left to the chances of a gradual settlement, increased but slowly. Its commanding position, however, made it a point of great interest to nations prosecuting the fisheries, and it was successively occupied by the English and French for a long series of years, and only permanently came into English possession in 1762; since then the English possession has been unbroken... The population has not increased any during the past twelve years, owing to continued unsuccessful fishing and consequent emigration. In 1802 the population numbered 3420, and in 1869, 22,553..."
