The Government of New Brunswick (French: Gouvernement du Nouveau-Brunswick) refers to the provincial government of the province of New Brunswick. Its powers and structure are set out in the Constitution Act, 1867.
In modern Canadian use, the term "government" referred broadly to the cabinet of the day (formally the Executive Council of New Brunswick), the Legislative Assembly of New Brunswick and the non-political staff within each provincial department or agency – that is, the civil service.
The Province of New Brunswick is now governed by a unicameral legislature, the Legislative Assembly of New Brunswick, which operates in the Westminster system of government minus the bicamerality. The political party that wins the largest number of seats in the legislature normally forms the government, and the party's leader becomes premier of the province, i.e., the head of the government.
