Cost Of Living

The Cost-of-Living Index (CPI) is a measurement goal that measures the amount consumers need to spend to reach a certain standard of living. The cost of living in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador is relatively low in comparison with the rest of the provinces in Canada, the US and European countries. Residents of Newfoundland and Labrador have also experienced, on average, less fluctuation in the CPI during the past 15 years, thus creating a more stable measure of what it might cost to live in the province over a longer period.

There are many item costs to consider when immigrating to Newfoundland and Labrador.
