Canadian Maritimes

Often simply "The Maritimes", the Canadian Maritimes are a region of Canada on the southern Atlantic coast, northeast of New England and southeast of the Gaspé. The Maritime provinces are New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.

New Brunswick and Nova Scotia were two of the original four provinces in the Canadian Confederation.

Newfoundland and Labrador is sometimes called a Maritime province, but strictly speaking it is not. (It can be called part of Atlantic Canada.)
