Establishing a company in New Brunswick, Canada
New Brunswick is one of the three Maritime provinces of Canada. It is situated on the country’s east, bordering on the Atlantic Ocean on its eastern coast, Nova Scotia to its southeast, the US state of Maine to its west, and Quebec to the north. New Brunswick is the only Canadian province which has two official languages – English and French – an advantage when deciding to establish a company there. Its population numbers a mere 750,000, its capital is the city of Fredericton, and it’s the most populous city is Saint John.
Geographically, the province of New Brunswick is comprised primarily of spectacular wild forests, and alongside urban and agricultural areas there is a relatively long coast. Similar to the rest of Canada, this province is also typified by a wintery-continental climate and short but pleasant summers. New Brunswick was home to generations of indigenous peoples of three central tribes. The 17th century brought with it French settlers, but in 1763 the area was conquered by the British and thus was officiously proclaimed a province, separated from nearby Nova Scotia which was still held by France.
