Burin is a charming town in Placentia Bay, located along the Burin Peninsula on the southern coast of Newfoundland. The population of the entire peninsula is approximately 21,000 residents. The town is historically a fishing community, but since the stagnation of offshore fishing in the early 90s, the community has endeavoured to focus it’s future on education, healthcare, technology and tourism with two college campuses and a hospital that service the community and provide both educational opportunities and employment. The beautiful rugged scenery and coastline dotted with small islands off the coast add to the charm and attraction of this historic community.
