Government of New Brunswick

GNB.ca is undergoing big changes to provide you with an improved visitor experience. 

Over the coming months, the official Government of New Brunswick website will be moving to a new technology platform. An improved website design and structure have also been developed. These have been based on feedback from our users, surveys and best practices from websites around the world.

Two primary goals have driven the redevelopment:

  1. To be the authoritative, timely source of information for the Province of New Brunswick.
  2. To make valuable information readily accessible to New Brunswickers and a wider global audience.

The new site focuses on providing clear pathways to information, and offers multiple ways to find content. Information is organized in such a way that visitors will not need advanced knowledge of our government’s structure to find the information they are looking for online.

The Government of New Brunswick has a vast amount of content that will be migrated to the new web format. This will take some time, during which you will experience both the old and new website designs.  We appreciate your patience as we make this transition. 

 

Recognizing that not everyone browses websites the same way, we have developed various ways of finding information, including:

Global Navigation

These options are always available no matter where you are on the website:

  • Contact information for government employees or offices
  • Links to department websites
  • Government services
  • Search functionality within GNB.ca

Search

Search may be the quickest and easiest way to find information on GNB.ca. You can search the entire website from any page using the search box at the top right. You can also narrow your search criteria to include only services and contacts. In addition, news or multimedia-specific searches will be possible within these areas of the website.

Main Navigation Bar

Main navigation items are designed to group content into categories related to a particular visitor group (audience) or subject. A navigation bar will be available on web pages so visitors can quickly find the most requested content. 

Quick Links

Quick Links can be found throughout the site and are located near the top right of web pages. These links represent the most requested information online and will help you locate popular and seasonal content.  

Breadcrumbs

Breadcrumbs, or link trails, are located just under the navigation bar on almost every page of the website.  Breadcrumbs provide visual location cues, and enable you to trace your path. You can click on any link in the breadcrumb trail and access that area of the website.

Footer Links

The links at the bottom of every page are consistent across GNB.ca. You can navigate to major sections of the website with a single click.

 

Common tasks should be easier with these enhancements:

  • Contacts and government office locations now include Google Maps
  • Page tools to print, e-mail and control font sizes
  • Bookmarks to save a page for future reference or to share using popular social media
  • RSS feeds for frequently updated content such as news releases
  • Friendly website addresses

Check back for additional features and enhancements that will be added in the future.

 

We have checked and tested the new website, but we may have missed a few things. If you discover a problem, please tell us. Include specific details such as a link to the page, contents of an error message, or tell us what you were doing just before the problem occurred.  Use the feedback link at the bottom of every page to send us your comments.

 

We are committed to continuous improvement and strive to offer a useful and timely website resource. We invite you tell us what you think about the site.
