New Brunswick ~ Fish and Fun : Student - Province Highlights

New Brunswick is one of four Atlantic provinces on the east coast of  Canada. According to the Costitution of Canada, New Brunswick is the only bilingual province. About two-thirds of the population declare themselves anglophones, and one third francophones. One-third of the population describes themselves as bilingual. The capital city is Fredericton.

New Brunswick's terrain is mostly forested uplands, with much of the land further from the coast, giving it a harsher climate. New Brunswick is 83% forested and less densely-populated than the rest of the Maritimes.
