Corner Brook (2016 population: 19,806 CA 31,917) is a city located on the west coast of the island of Newfoundland in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.
Located on the Bay of Islands at the mouth of the Humber River, the city is the fifth-largest population centre in the province behind St. John's, and smallest of three cities behind St. John's and Mount Pearl. As such, Corner Brook functions as a service centre for western and northern Newfoundland. It is located on the same latitude as Gaspé, Quebec, a city of similar size and landscape on the other side of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Corner Brook is the most northern city in Atlantic Canada.
It is the administrative headquarters of the Qalipu Mi'kmaq First Nations band government. The Mi'kmaq name for the nearby Humber River is "Maqtukwek".
