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.
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. The total population was 753,914 people (2014 census) and there are 8 cities.
We’re retired amateur photographers, based in Fredericton. Our retirement project is taking photos and exploring New Brunswick’s history and beauty. We are non-profit and self-fund our travels with support from friendly campgrounds. 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 get off the main highway, stop and vacation with us. This province has so much history and beauty in its small towns and along rivers and country roads. Explore and learn where your ancestors came from. That’s what MyNewBrunswick is all about.
Material on our site is also gathered from various articles found on the internet. We also cover occasional current events on our Instagram, Twitter and Facebook accounts.
