Really? forgive my ignorance but what's the difference?

The maritime prov.s are

Prince Edward Island
New Brunswick
Nova Scotia

Newfoundland and Labrador are considered an Atlantic Province but not a part of the maritime's...

Correct me if I'm wrong, Ivan, but I think it's a timing thing.

PEI, NB and NS have been part of Canada for darn near ever, whereas NL+L only became a part of the country in the mid-1900s.

March 31, 1949 is the date. Here ends the history lesson....

I think that we are too far away and far too big to be called a "Maritime" province. Atlantic, yes.... Maritime, not really.... :)

It's all Newfoundlander semantics....

I think its maritime semantics... a way to have a separate group outside of the Atlantic provinces (ie. Newfoundland and Labrador) to make deals with the Government of Canada collectively.
