Living in St. John's

Scenic Hiking Trail

The City of St. John's is a vibrant place to live, work and play. The City is pleased to offer a wide variety of services to our residents. In this section of the website you will find everything from animal adoption to information on the water you drink to our wide variety of recreational opportunities.  When you think of a municipality some of the most common services that may come to mind include garbage collection, water and sewer services, or roads. But the City of St. John's offers much more than the basic municipal services, have a look and find out why St. John's is such a great place to live and raise a family.

The Board of Directors for the 2025 Canada Games Host Society in St. John’s has appointed Karen Sherriffs as Chief Executive Officer. Sherriffs will take on the role effective early 2022.
