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 rivers and 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.
Check out our “Historic Photos” page for a look into our past.

This site expresses our love for New Brunswick and its history. We are not paid for doing this. It costs a lot for gas and park fees to do this project and we could use your help. It’s also expensive to pay for a server to host our web site. We are a non-profit site, but we have a few sponsors who have kindly helped us with donations. So we do what we can afford. If you would like to sponsor us or make a donation to help us continue our journey around the province, click here or contact us by email. Thanks.
New Brunswick truly IS “The Picture Province” with the most gorgeous scenery in the world, and the friendliest people. And we want you to discover it!
