New Brunswick

New Brunswick is one of the coastal provinces of Canada. It has a little over three quarters of a million inhabitants and an area of just over 71,000 square kilometres. The capital is Fredericton and Saint John is the largest city. The vast majority of the population are white, while Indians make up 3.31 % of the population. There is strong representation of the French-speaking population (33 %). The strongest religious group is the Roman Catholic Church (53.4 %). The Protestant (United Church of Canada, Baptist and Anglican Church) has 35.7 % of the population while 8.7 % are without religion.

The province is named after the city of Brunswick (in German Braunschweig) located in modern day Lower Saxony in northern Germany (and also in the former duchy of the same name). Brunswick was the ancestral home of the Hanoverian King George III of the United Kingdom.
