Cape Spear is located on the Avalon Peninsula near St. John’s, Newfoundland and is considered the easternmost point in Canada and North America excluding Greenland. Cape Spear is close to Blackhead, an amalgamated area of the City of St. John’s, about 1.86 miles (3 km) away.

The Portuguese named this location “Cabo da Esperança” which means “cape of hope”, which became “Cap d’Espoir” in French and finally “Cape Spear”.
