I have no doubt that the following places in my list can grow black walnut at least as well as Fredericton:

Huron County ON, Kingston, Montreal

(likely better in the case of the former two, as well in the case of the latter)

The natural range of black walnut in Canada matches roughly the Carolinian / Deciduous part of Ontario, so they're much less outside that if planted in Huron County or the eastern parts of the GTA than if planted in Freddy.
Black Walnut trees have successfully been planted, and have produced walnuts, in Corner Brook NL, so that may completely destroy the illusion. They may be able to be successful in a lot of spots in the country.
