Scottish people have
a long history in Canada, dating back several centuries. Many
towns, rivers and mountains have been named in honour of
Scottish explorers and traders such as Mackenzie Bay and
Calgary. Most notably, the name of the Atlantic
province Nova Scotia is latin for
New Scotland. Almost every province and
territory has an officially recognized tartan.
The 2006 Census of Canada recorded
4,719,850 people of scottish descent;
some sources say this is a major underestimation. There are
hundreds of places named after scottish locations.

New Brunswick has a very rich Scottish
heritage. Everywhere you will find history of the Scottish
immigrants who settled and built this province economically,
socially, politically and culturally. The Executive Council,
Board of Directors, and Committee Chairs are committed to the
promotion of this Association and its work in promoting and
protecting the Scottish culture in New Brunswick.
We believe that the Association's most important function is to
establish links with the different Scottish groups in New
Brunswick -- to bind more closely together these diverse groups
to improve communication and the sharing of information.
