The provinces of New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island are part of the Atlantic Canada region, which is home to Academic culture and is famous for its unique accent, natural beauties (especially in coastal areas), the historical beauty of Halifax, as well as fishing and shipping industry.
