New Brunswick is one of three island provinces on the eastern shore of Canada. Designated as the only bilingual province, the majority of its residents speak both English and French.
Due to the amazing natural resources of the region, the export business is a huge part of its economic growth. Minerals, natural gas, forestry, farming, and fishing dominate the local economy.
The tourism industry is also doing very well in the region, especially New Brunswick’s main port, St. John. In this vibrant and historic port you will find cruise ships, wildlife preserves, animal zoos, waterfall parks, museums, hiking trails, and don’t forget about the New Brunswick Casino!
