Supplement no. 2

Date: March 21, 2003

Supplement no. 2 is issued by Standards Division to inform users of the official abbreviations in English and French for the province of Newfoundland and Labrador.

Official abbreviations - Newfoundland and Labrador

When the SGC 2001 was released in March 2002, there were no official abbreviations for Newfoundland and Labrador. The abbreviations suggested at that time, Nfld.Lab. in English and T.-N.-L. in French, were provisional. Since then, the provincial government has given its approval for the new official abbreviations: N.L. in English and T.-N.-L. in French. For a complete list see provincial abbreviations.

Divisions, when using provincial/territorial abbreviations for releasing data, are expected to implement the new abbreviations at the earliest opportunity.
