You can email us at nbtourism@gnb.ca to ask your questions or call 1-800-561-0123 to speak one-on-one with one of our helpful New Brunswick travel consultants.

If you’re already on the road, stop at a Municipal Visitor Information Centre to take advantage of a variety of free services to make your travel in the province stress-free.

Travel counsellors will help you discover the best the area has to offer and will give you many great ideas and suggestions, including attractions, natural sites and accommodations.

New Brunswick is in the Atlantic Standard Time zone

The Atlantic time zone (UTC/GMT -4 hours) is 4 hours behind London time and 5 hours behind European time. If you are traveling from Ontario, Quebec or Maine, don’t forget to set your watch an hour ahead!

We also participate in Daylight Savings Time, which means that on the second Sunday in March, the clock goes ahead one hour – until the first Sunday in November when the clock goes back one hour.

Sales Tax

The sales tax is called the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) and is applied at a single rate of 15% to a base of goods and services. (This percentage is made up of 5% federal tax and 10% provincial tax.)
