about the area
Tilting is a community on the eastern end of Fogo Island off the northeast coast of Newfoundland. It was previously incorporated as a town prior to becoming part of the Town of Fogo Island through an amalgamation in 2011. The community has been designated as a National Historic Site of Canada, and was also designated as a Registered Heritage District by the Heritage Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador.
Tilting is noted for the large number of traditional Newfoundland fishing structures and houses, many of which have been restored in recent years. The community is noteworthy for the longevity of its Irish culture and dialect. It was first settled in the mid-18th century, though French fishers knew of, and used, Tilting as a summer fishing base from the 16th century until the early 18th century.
