Is Newfoundland Southwest or Northeast of Vancouver Island?
- SteveNLv 75 years agoFavorite Answer
Newfoundland: A province found on the EAST coast of Canada.
Global coordinates: 53.0000° N, 60.0000° W
Vancouver Island: A large island in the province of British Columbia, located off the WEST coast of Canada.
Global coordinates: 49.5000° N, 125.5000° W
They are at exactly the opposite ends of an east-west trip across Canada. If you try to go southwest or northeast of Vancouver Island to get to Newfoundland, you will get lost in either the South Pacific or the Arctic Tundra respectively.

Hawaii is southwest of Vancouver Island. Newfoundland is definitely northeast.

How can Newfoundland which is on the Atlantic be southwest of Vancouver Island which is on the Pacific?
Newfoundland is on the EAST Coast and is a province in itself. Vancouver Island is on the WEST Coast and is part of a province. So therefore Newfoundland is EAST

It's not like they're all on one parallel. Newfoundland goes as Southern as the 46th parallel, and Vancouver Island as Northern as the 50th, so it depends on what exactly you're talking about. But on average Vancouver Island is more Southern, and obviously more Eastern!

Neither. It's due east, on the other side of the continent.
Look at a map and see for yourself:
Vancouver island is on the left side of North America, Newfoundland is on the right.

I guess if you went the super duper extra ridiculously long way round the Earth Newfoundland COULD be considered west of Vancouver Island.If you're super bad at geography and route planning.

Actually, Newfoundland is not as north as you might think. They are almost due east.

It is on the complete other side of the country, 8000km to the east, give or take.
