St. Anthony is located at the northeastern corner of the Great Northern Peninsula on the Island of Newfoundland. It is approximately four hundred and thirty kilometres by paved road (Highway 430) from the Trans Canada Highway at Deer Lake. Accessibility has improved with the development of the road link down the Northern Peninsula and with improved air service. While travel by boat in the old days took two days between St. Anthony and Corner Brook, it is now possible to travel by plane to Deer Lake or Gander in approximately one hour while it is approximately five hours over the road to the Trans Canada Highway at Deer Lake.
The Canadian dollar is the currency used in Newfoundland.
