On November 28, 2022, local elections will be held by Elections New Brunswick as part of the local governance reform initiative.
Our current structure has 340 entities, including 104 local governments and 236 local service districts. The new structure will have 77 local governments and 12 rural districts.
Under the new structure, some local governments will be electing entirely new councils. In other local governments, by-elections will be held to fill new council positions and in some local governments, elections are not required.
In addition, first elections will be held in 12 newly created rural districts to elect councillors who will sit as members of rural district advisory committees.
Visit ElectionsNB to find out more about your local government and whether an election will take place.
