About New Brunswick
New Brunswick's Bay of Fundy is an eco attraction on par with such marvels as the Great Barrier Reef of Australia and the Rain Forest of Brazil. Its mighty tides are the greatest on earth. Every day, twice daily, one hundred billion tons of seawater roll in and out of the Bay. At low tide, you can literally walk on the ocean floor. At high tide, just six hours later, your footprints will be covered by the ocean. In some places, the vertical difference between high and low tide is 14 meters roughly the same height as a four storey hotel.
One of the three Maritime provinces, and included as one of the four Atlantic provinces, of Canada, bounded on the north by the Province Quebec and Chaleur Bay, on the east by the Gulf of Saint Lawrence and Northumberland Strait, on the south east by Nova Scotia, on the south by the Bay of Fundy, and on the west by the state of Maine. The New Brunswick is joined to Nova Scotia by the narrow Isthmus of Chignecto. New Brunswick entered the Canadian Confederation on July 1, 1867 as one of the four original provinces. The province has traditionally had an economy based on the exploitation of its natural resources. In the early 1990s forestry and mineral industries remained important, but services and manufacturing were the dominant sectors. The province is named for the British royal family of Brunswick Luneburg (the house of Hannover). New Brunswick is called the Loyalist Province.
Tourism in the early 1990s, accounted for 1.4 million nonresidents visiting the province annually; total spending by all travelers generated about Can. 575 million a year for the New Brunswick economy. Among the most popular tourist spots are Magnetic Hill, the reversing falls of Saint John, and the Flowerpot Rocks on the Bay of Fundy. New Brunswick has two national parks, Fundy and Kouchibouguac. In addition, some 48 provincial parks and recreation areas allow for camping in nearly every part of the province.
