New Brunswick Map
New Brunswick is part of the Maritimes and is one of the four Atlantic provinces. It borders Quebec, Nova Scotia, and Maine with the Bay of Fundy in the south and the Gulf of St. Lawrence in the northeast. New Brunswick is the third-smallest province in size and population. It was one of the four original provinces (along with Nova Scotia, Ontario, and Quebec) when Canada became a country in 1867. It’s the only province with both French and English as its official languages. Also, the highest tides in the world are from the Bay of Fundy, which is situated on the south coast of the province. Fredericton is the capital city but Moncton is the most populous city.

New Brunswick Elevation Map
New Brunswick has a diverse landscape of rolling plateau, plains, and stepper terrain. For example, the Appalachian Mountain range lies in the west section of New Brunswick. At 820 meters (2,690 feet), this region contains its highest peak, Mount Carleton. It’s also situated within the Canadian portion of the International Appalachian Trail. While the west is very rugged, the interior is mostly rolling plateau. Then, it transitions to flatter topography to the east. Forests cover most of New Brunswick. The province also includes 3 islands to the southwest – Deer Island, Campobello Island, and Grand Manan.
