Area Information
- Location:
The Town of Come by Chance is located at the head of Placentia Bay on the Isthmus of Avalon. Originally called Passage Harbour by John Guy in 1612, the name "Comby Chance" was first recorded in 1706, perhaps in reference to the discovery of the harbour "by chance."
- Come by Chance gained national importance in the 1970s with the building of a $120 million petroleum complex including two huge crude-oil storage tanks, a CNR spur track, a deep-water oil terminal and the refinery itself. Come by Chance is also the site of one of Canada's busiest ports in terms of tonnage.
