In early 1700s, area that is now New Brunswick was part of French colony of Acadia, which was in turn part of New France. Acadia comprises most of what is now Maritimes, as well as parts of Quebec and Maine. Peace And Prosperity Of Colony Was Ended By Rivalry Between Britain And France For Control Of Territory In Europe And North America Starting In Early 1700s. With 1713 Treaty of Utrecht, part of Acadia, today know as peninsular Nova Scotia, became another British colony on eastern seaboard. Prince Edward Island Cape Breton Island remain French. To defend area, French built six forts and one was later captured by British and New England troops in 1755, followed soon after by Expulsion of Acadians. After American Revolution, about 10 000 loyalist refugees settled along north shore of Bay of Fundy, commemorated in province's motto, hope to restore. In 1784, New Brunswick was from Nova Scotia, and that year saw its first elected assembly. In 1785, John became Canada's first incorporated city. In 1866, US cancelled Canadian-American Reciprocity Treaty, leading to loss of trade with New England and prompting desire to build trade within British North America, while Fenian raids increased support for union. On 1 July 1867, New Brunswick entered Canadian Confederation along with Nova Scotia, Quebec and Ontario. At end of Great Depression, New Brunswick's standard of living was much below Canadian average.
