Having traveled across Canada, besides Quebec, I'd say that the Maritime Provinces have a quaint way about them that is the part of Canada that is least-similar to the US in various ways.

There is a "simple way" about Canada's Maritime Provinces that is not at all like other parts of Canada and very different from even their closest geographic US counterparts (New England, etc) which is far more materialistic and rat-race'y'...Apparently, Nova Scotia just allowed shopping on Sundays?

As I said in another thread, the Maritimes (NS, NB and PEI) are actually quite similar to parts of New England like Maine and other slower-paced areas of NE not in the immediate vicinity of Boston.

Among Canada's provinces, aside from the obvious one that is Quebec, the one that feels most "foreign" as compared to the U.S. is most certainly Newfoundland.
