Canada's Smallest Town

Tilt Cove is a town located southeast of Baie Verte on Notre Dame Bay and was founded in 1813.

With an official population of 5 at the 2016 Census, Tilt Cove is known as "Canada's smallest town."

Tilt Cove was a tiny fishing settlement with a population of about 25. In 1857, Smith McKay discovered rich deposits of copper ore and in 1864, in conjunction with C.F. Bennett, he began mining operations.

In 1916, the population peaked to 1500.

Nearby Snook’s Arm resettled over the winter.
