New Brunswick is one of four Atlantic provinces on the east coast of Canada. According to the Constitution of Canada, it is the only bilingual province. About two-thirds of the population declare themselves anglophones and one-third francophones. One-third of the population describes themselves as bilingual. Atypically for Canada, only about half of the population lives in urban areas, mostly in Greater Moncton, Greater Saint John, and the capital Fredericton. Many newcomers enter through the Atlantic Immigration Pilot, using their skilled labour as the basis of their application.
