About New Brunswick

Thinking about Studying in New Brunswick

Want to go to school on the east coast? Then New Brunswick is a great option. One of the three Maritime Provinces in the country, New Brunswick is the only officially bilingual province in Canada. Outside of Quebec, New Brunswick has the largest portion of their population that speak French, with more than 30% of residents speaking French daily.

If you are into city life you can live in Saint John, Fredericton, or Moncton, or you can live in one of the smaller communities if you like to take things at a slower pace.
