Stephenville (2005 est. pop.: 8,000) is a Canadian town in Newfoundland and Labrador on the west coast of the island of Newfoundland, located near the head of St. George's Bay. Stephenville serves a direct population of 25,000 people from surrounding areas. Its Airport serves a catchment population of 90,000 people from Port Aux Basques to the south, to the north of St. Anthony.
The town functions as a local service centre for the southwestern part of the island, with a 40 bed modern hospital (built in 2003), schools, stores, and banks. The town also includes a harbour, named Port Harmon, which was used for exporting of newsprint, up until the closure of the Abitibi-Consolidation paper mill in October, 2005. The provincial community college system, College of the North Atlantic, is headquartered in Stephenville and maintains a campus there for students from the southwestern region of the island. A provincial minimum security jail is also located in the town. The town also has an 18-hole links style golf course that was expanded from a 9-hole course in 1999, which was orinigally built by the USAF.
