Is New Brunswick a Province?

Yes – New Brunswick is a province. New Brunswick is a province of Canada which was established in 1784 as part of the Constitutional Act.

It is located in northeastern Canada on the Atlantic coast, its land borders are shared with the US state of Maine to the south and Quebec to the west.

Its largest city is Fredericton, which is about 110 kilometres northwest of Saint John.

The Province’s language and culture reflect those of the region it came from: 9% speak just French at home, 57% just English at home, a 100% immigrant population (mostly English and French) with some German and Irish immigrants mixed in.

As of 2019, 776,827 people lived in New Brunswick. The population density is currently about 10.5 people per square kilometre. The median age is 43.6 years old; roughly 15% are under 14 and more than 16% are over 65 years old. There are more females than males in the province.

New Brunswick’s economy relies largely on natural resources such as agriculture (potatoes, vegetables, dairy) forestry, fishing and mining. The per-capita GDP growth rate was 5.9% in 2007, down from 6.2% and 6.7% in 2006 and 2005 respectively.

The total personal income in 2006 was $25 billion, making the per-capita income $36,000 (compared with a national average of $27,000). 21.5% of the labour force is unionized; the province is divided between higher paying Crown Corporations and lower paying Local Government entities and private enterprises.

New Brunswick has no official religion although it does recognize an established religion “for spiritual guidance”.
