Geographical and cultural context
The Maritime Conference encompasses New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, the Gaspé peninsula of Quebec, and Bermuda, but its headquarters and archives are located in Sackville, NB. Therefore, even those fonds created outside of New Brunswick may be included in this database.
