Torbay is located in the Avalon region of Newfoundland and Labrador, the most easterly province in Canada. Newfoundland and Labrador is also the youngest province in Canada, joining Confederation in 1949. Torbay borders the Atlantic Ocean and offers breathtaking views not seen in any other parts of the world. Our capital city of Newfoundland and Labrador, St. John’s, borders Torbay. We are a very short drive from both the largest city’s retail centre and the international airport.
Torbay is the second fastest growing municipality in the province, with a 14.7% population growth from 2001 to 2006. Our population is approximately 7,000 and, although it has the feel of a rural community, its proximity to St. John’s makes it seem to be more urban. Torbay is home to over seventy businesses, two schools, and numerous clubs and organizations. In order to accommodate this growth, many new developments have taken place in the community and many plans are being finalized with regards to the future of the town. This town and this province are, indeed, a beautiful place.
