This bi-lingual province speaks mainly English but has a significant portion (33%) of French-speaking residents. Fredericton is New Brunswick’s capital, with Moncton being the province’s most extensive metro area and St. John being the most populated. Industry varies in New Brunswick. Each of these three areas has a mix of modern service-based sectors such as healthcare, education, retail, financial, and insurance. St. John has additional heavy industry, shipping facilities, and large oil-fired and nuclear power plants.
Fredericton concentrates on education and government facilities, whereas Moncton’s logistical aspects of air and rail facilities are prominent. In New Brunswick’s rural areas, Forestry, Mining, Farming, and Fishing are primary. In regions like St. John, Atholville, Miramichi, Nackawic, and Edmundston, paper and pulp mills are the primary employers whereas in the north around Bathurst, heavy metals like lead and zinc are being mined.
