New Brunswick, along with Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island, is considered the Atlantic province of Canada.

The eastern territory of New Brunswick, washed by the ocean, adjoins the Island of Prince Edward - the famous Confederate bridge erected over the Northumberland Strait, provides a link between the two provinces. In the north and center of New Brunswick, the spurs of the Appalachians rise, in the southeast lowlands dominate, and the south is decorated with Caledonian hills framing the picturesque Bay of Fundy - one of the best national parks of the continent.
A significant part of New Brunswick is occupied by rivers and lakes. The local landscapes are so beautiful that this Canadian province is called a "picture". The region's economy is also largely based on inland water resources - water bodies and rivers are full of fish: sturgeon, trout, perch, salmon, herring, roach and many other species. The largest river of the province is St. John, its basin covers about half of the entire territory, and the most important cities are situated on its shores: Edmondson, St. John and the capital Fredericton. In addition, there are many small towns and villages.
