New Brunswick (French: Nouveau-Brunswick) is one of Canada's three Maritime Provinces and is the only province in the Canadian federation that is constitutionally bilingual (English–French). Fredericton is the capital and Saint John is the most populous city proper. Greater Moncton (Moncton, Dieppe, Riverview) forms the province's largest census metropolitan area. In the 2011 nation wide census, Statistics Canada estimated the provincial population to have been 1,577,459. The majority of the population is English-speaking, but there is also a large Francophone minority (33%), chiefly of Acadian origin.
