This is in line with the same terminology south of the Canadian border: the Eastern United States refers to the East Coast of the United States. However, in Canada, "Eastern Canada" is sometimes confusingly used to include the Canadian province of Ontario. This is a misnomer, however, as this province is in central Canada and doest not border the East Coast. Further distinctions can be made. For example, the term "Maritime Provinces" refers to New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.
- Newfoundland and Labrador - St. John's
- Nova Scotia - Halifax
- Prince Edward Island - Charlottetown
- New Brunswick - Fredericton
