Newfoundland & Labrador were separate from Canada,
hence the use of the VO radio prefix.  They joined
the confederation as the Province of Newfoundland
and Labrador on 31 March 1949.

The administrative seat of government is in 
St. John's, NF.  (Not to be confused with Saint John,
New Brunswick.)  The official prefix (used in post 
and on the Internet) is NF.

Are you thinking of Nunavut, which was created
back in 1 Apr 1999?
