New Brunswick - the perfect place for your next discovery

 

New Brunswick is Canada’s only officially bilingual province and has a population just over 720,000. 

 

New Brunswick is located under Quebec's Gaspé Peninsula and beside the State of Maine. Its northern border includes the Restigouche River and the Baie des Chaleurs. Its eastern boundary is entirely coastal and dotted with warm, sandy beaches, featuring the warmest salt water north of Virginia. To the south, Chignecto Bay and the 24-kilometre wide Isthmus of Chignecto, which connects New Brunswick to Nova Scotia, form part of New Brunswick's southern border.


The rest of it is along the Bay of Fundy where the highest tides in the world have carved a spectacular coastline. New Brunswick is also connected to Prince Edward Island by the world-famous Confederation Bridge.


An eastern seaside province, New Brunswick has beautiful sandy beaches in the summer, spectacular autumn foliage, wildflowers in the spring and pure, white snow in the winter. The province is marked by its rolling hills and spectacular valleys, as well as its historic and modern architecture located in many of its cities, towns and villages.


New Brunswick's communities vary from its eight major cities, Bathurst, Campbellton, Dieppe, Edmundston, the provincial capital of Fredericton, Miramichi, Moncton and Saint John (“Saint” is always spelled out), to its many attractive towns and villages located throughout the province that offer a wide range of attractions to visitors and residents alike.


Its rivers, such as the mighty St. John, the magnificent Restigouche or the majestic Miramichi, all possess unique characteristics unlike anywhere else. From rolling farmlands to picturesque forests, river valleys to rocky pinnacles, the beauty and variety New Brunswick offers is unique in the world.


In some parts of the province there’s a strong Acadian presence. In these communities, living history is part of everyday life. There’s an infectious brand of “joie-de-vivre” that you can see, hear, taste and feel.

 

It’s easy to see why people come here from all over the world—not only to hike, canoe and fish, but also to shop, see world-class art and theatre, and to visit unique attractions around every bend. New Brunswick—you’ll be planning your next experience here before you’ve finished your first. That’s the kind of place this is.
