Who we are:

The Union of the Municipalities of New Brunswick (UMNB) is a bilingual association of sixty-one local governments of all sizes, representing over one third of New Brunswick’s population.

Since 1994, UMNB has advocated for strong, sustainable communities throughout the province. Our members decide UMNB’s policies & priorities through member resolutions, at regional Zone meetings, and at our Annual General Meeting. Together, our members tackle local challenges and share solutions to make life better for their citizens.

our members’ interests & concerns and ensure local priorities are on the provincial agenda.


municipal leaders across the province to exchange knowledge and solutions that strengthen their communities.
