Or I suppose one could guess by looking at the existing tags there. (I would assume Fredericton is English area?) If we have a list then could update the NB wiki page. https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/New_Brunswick
The general rule is that southern and western NB is English, northern and eastern is French; but there are exceptions, and a couple places like Bathurst and Campbellton are 50/50.
But yes, you can almost always tell from the tags and the street names themselves (e.g. "St. Mary's" vs "Sainte-Marie").
