New Brunswick lies on the Atlantic Coast of Canada and is heavily forested – about 80 percent of the land is covered with woodland inhabited by moose, bears and other wildlife. Most people who move to New Brunswick find they are welcomed into very friendly communities. Southern New Brunswick is home to the province’s English speaking communities. French speaking communities – making up one-third of the people in New Brunswick – lie in the northern part of the province.
New Brunswick is Canada’s only officially bilingual province.
New Brunswick is one of Canada’s smallest provinces – about the same size as Ireland or Scotland or the Czech Republic.
This leaves plenty of space for its 770,000 residents to enjoy the great outdoors and to build their houses.
