Suppose you could bridge that, then from Halifax you could continue on WestJet Encore (Q400) and a whole distance into America. But again, no way to cross the Pacific on a turboprop.
As for the Middle East, I've tried finding a more northern routing through Russia but so far without luck. Furthest east I could get is Ukraine (Motor Sich Airlines), but that's as far as it goes. Russia used to be full of turboprops (mostly AN-24), but it seems they're gone now.

Just found out there still are, however today they're flown on the Beechcraft Super King Air 200 operated by Air Nunavut. However they're operated as charters, so not sure if they count. Looking at FlightRadar24 they fly pretty regularly, every few days. Route is Nuuk to Iqaluit.
Until 2015 Air Greenland used to fly this route with the Dash 8, but not anymore.
