A growing community on the edge of nature.

Welcome to Conception Bay South, one of the fastest growing municipalities in the province with a strong sense of community, and a close connection to nature. Just a 20-minute drive from downtown St. John’s, NL, Conception Bay South is one of the province’s newest towns, made up of some of Newfoundland’s oldest settlements.

The town is quickly becoming the community of choice for families wanting to establish long-term roots. Our favourable climate, rural feel, close proximity to urban amenities, offshore servicing projects, and natural resource processing create an ideal location to live and work on the Avalon Peninsula.
