New Brunswick is one of Canada’s three Maritime Provinces, and is the only constitutionally bilingual province (French and English) in Canada.
In New Brunswick you’ll find the world's highest tides that rise and fall the height of a four-storey building, twice a day, every day. And that’s just one of the natural wonders of this province. You’ll also find breathtaking rivers, coastal dunes and the Appalachians, some of the oldest mountains on earth.
Its capital city, Fredericton, boasts many attractions to lure visitors. You’ll find superb restaurants, exciting nightlife, unique shopping, galleries and so much more.
