New Brunswick is the largest of Canada’s three Maritime provinces and is the only province in the federation that is constitutionally bilingual (English–French).
As one of Canada’s four founding provinces, New Brunswick is rich in history and in the diversity of our people, landscapes and languages. Our site discovers history and information from various sources including historians, heritage groups, and various historical internet sources.
2017 is Canada’s 150th Anniversary and we invite you to get to know New Brunswick by browsing through our web site.
Fredericton is the capital. New Brunswick covers 73,440 square kilometres. The province’s highest peak is Mount Carleton at 820 metres (2,690 feet), which is part of the Appalachian Range, and is the centre of Mount Carleton Provincial Park, in northern New Brunswick. The total population was 753,914 people (2014 census) and there are 8 cities.
We’re two retired guys, avid amateur photographers, based in Fredericton. Our hobby is taking photos. Through MyNewBrunswick we want to share our province with you. We are not associated with the Department of Tourism or the Provincial Government. They concentrate their promotion on the larger tourist attractions. Our mission is to show you that there’s much more to see and do here if you stop and vacation with us. This province has so much history and beauty in its small towns and along country roads. That’s what MyNewBrunswick is all about.
We will post photos taken on our travels around the province, plus some oldies showing New Brunswicks past. And we’ll include little-known tidbits of history we uncover along the way. We also cover occasional current local events of interest.
For 2017 we purchased a Drone to add to our arsenal. With it, we can show you a different perspective. In the top menu, move your mouse over “Videos” to get the “MyNB Drone” page. We’ll post some of our videos there and you can always subscribe to our YouTube Channel. To find posts on our site that contain Drone videos, choose “MyNB Drone” in the “Category” list.
This site expresses our love for New Brunswick and its history. We are not paid for doing this, nor do we have any sponsors helping us with travel expenses. So we do what we can afford. With our fifth wheel, we travel the province as much as we can during the summer. If anyone would like to sponsor us or help out, please drop us an email.
To see our latest photos, look at “Recent Posts“, and be sure to check the Monthly Archive for even more photos and facts. Looking for something in particular? Try typing it in the “Search” box.
