Northumberland Strait

The Northumberland Strait is a channel in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence in eastern North America. It separates the Canadian province of Prince Edward Island from the mainland provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.

Its narrowest point, 12.9 kilometres between Borden-Carleton, Prince Edward Island[?] and Cape Jourimain, New Brunswick[?], is spanned by the Confederation Bridge.
