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.)
