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 Saturday in March, the clock goes ahead one hour – until the first Saturday in November when the clock goes back one hour.

Sales Tax

The sales tax is called the Harmonized Sales Tax (or, HST) and is applied at a single rate of 13% to a base of goods and services. (This percentage is made up of 5% federal tax and 8% provincial tax.)
