New Brunswick (French: Nouveau-Brunswick; pronounced: [nuvobʁɔnzwik]) is one of Canada's three Maritime provinces and is the only constitutionally bilingual province (English and French) in the federation.[4] The provincial capital is Fredericton, while Saint John is the most populous city, and metropolitan Moncton is the largest census metropolitan area. Statistics Canada estimates the provincial population in 2009 to be 750,457; a majority are English-speaking, but there is also a large Francophone minority (33%), chiefly of Acadian origin.

The province's name comes from the English and French partial transcription of the city of Brunswick (Braunschweig in German) in northern Germany (and former duchy of the same name), the ancestral home of the Hanoverian King George III of Great Britain.
