ATLANTIC PROVINCES

The provinces of Newfoundland, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia come together at Expo 67 in the Atlantic Provinces pavilion, located between the Canada pavilion and the Indians of Canada pavilion. The building, with a large sail flying from its mast, is a symbol of what unites these provinces: the Atlantic Ocean, which is the pavilion's central theme. The first Europeans who came to Canada landed on the shores of these provinces. Created with the bones of marine animals gathered in Newfoundland, a sculpture of a long ship symbolizes the Viking presence on the Atlantic coast around 1000 A.D.


Inside the pavilion is a series of exhibits on natural resources, industry, leisure, and culture and heritage in the Atlantic provinces. One aspect of this heritage that is still alive and well is presented in an original way through the construction of an authentic schooner, the Atlantica. This vessel was launched on October 11, 1967, the Atlantic Provinces' pavilion day.


Visitors have the opportunity to attend numerous shows featuring performers from the Maritimes. Those who have a particular liking for fish and seafood will also appreciate the pavilion restaurant.
