This is a list of the counties in the Canadian province of New Brunswick, with shire towns in parentheses. Since 1966, counties in New Brunswick serve virtually no purpose except the court system, and as geographical expressions of location (i.e., most citizens always know which county they are in). They still appear on most maps. Prior to Equal Opportunity in 1966, counties were the uppermost of the complicated three-tiered local government system in New Brunswick. Below each county were numerous parishes, then municipalities for some areas, while some went only as far down as the parish. See List of parishes in New Brunswick also. All municipalities were subordinate to the parish they were located within, and the parish to the county. The only exception to this was the City of Saint John which was the only municipality not to be in a parish. It was however, in St. John County.
