NL Facts

Since 2011, we have produced interesting and compelling content of the beautiful province of Newfoundland and Labrador. The core mission of NL Facts is to continue spreading the cultural values and traditions of the province.

Newfoundlanders and Labradorians are some of the best storytellers, poets, musicians, artist, and people in the world. We look forward to continuing showcasing the individuals who make this province the truly special place it is.

Our Story

In the summer of 2011, a local St.John’s, NL native Paddy Wadden, developed a passion for social media and content. Starting with mainly historical based St.John’s tweets, the @NLFacts Twitter account was born. Since then, NL Facts has covered anything and everything Newfoundland and Labrador. With over 8000 followers, NL Facts has gained the attention of prominent media types including CBC’s Peter Mansbridge and Republic of Doyle’s Allan Hawco.

We now plan on spreading across all social networks as well as creating more engaging content including videos and blog posts

Stay tuned!
