  • Further details: 'Ode to Newfoundland' is the official provincial anthem of Newfoundland and Labrador. It dates back to 1904, when it was penned by Governor Sir CHARLES CAVENDISH BOYLE (1849-1916) to a tune by Sir CHARLES HUBERT HASTINGS PARRY (1848-1918). When Newfoundland received Dominion status in 1907, the song was made into its national anthem, but this distinction was dropped when Newfoundland joined the Canadian Confederation in 1949. Three decades later, in 1980, the province re-adopted the song as an official provincial anthem.
