Our City Our Story

Welcome to Our City, Our Story - the City's storytelling page - to share the personal stories of residents and others with a connection to St. John's.

St. John’s aspires to be a place where people feel connected, have a sense of belonging, and are actively engaged in community life. Having a sense of place is key to belonging and, as the StoryCenter explains, "sense of place is the basis of many profound stories… insights into place give us insight about your sense of values and connection to the community.”

So, what do you feel about living in St. John's? What are stories that newcomers, long-time residents, business owners and others tell about their lived experience in St. John's?
