Former Lieutenant Governors of New Brunswick


Lieutenant Governors are appointed by the Governor General on the recommendation of the Prime Minister of Canada and the Federal Cabinet. The appointment is for a period of not less than five years and the salary is paid by the federal government.

The first list of leaders below is those of the Governors of the British Colony of New Brunswick when it separated from Nova Scotia on August 16, 1784. When New Brunswick became a province of Canada in 1867, the position was then changed to Lieutenant Governors to reflect New Brunswick as part of the Dominion and no longer its own entity.
