Government of New Brunswick

NB Property Assessment is a branch of Service New Brunswick (SNB) and is mandated to assess all properties in New Brunswick in compliance with the Assessment Act and regulations.

Service New Brunswick’s NB Property Assessment is committed to improving the individual property owners experience. Our vision is to deliver clear and trusted property assessment information to your doorstep. 

The “Executive Director of Assessment” is a statutory position under the Assessment Act. It is the Executive Director who must ensure all properties are assessed “at real and true value”.

The Executive Director is appointed by SNB and may delegate his or her duties. The Executive Director is unlike other employee and senior management within SNB as they report directly to the CEO, with a direct line of communication to the Board of Directors (BoD).  This direct line of communication with the BoD helps ensure the branch’s independence. 

NB Property Assessment has over 130 employees working out of our local offices throughout the province.

The regional model employed by NB Property Assessment ensures all communities in New Brunswick, whether large or small, are represented by local assessors who understand the local market.  Our regional model helps ensure local service needs are met, while optimizing the opportunities for collaboration with a provincial network of assessors leading to more efficient and effective use of our resources.

New Brunswick’s assessors are professionals in the field of mass appraisal.   All assessors are required to complete a series of university courses.  A number of senior assessors hold designation and specialized accreditation.  In order for all assessors to keep their skills and knowledge current, they are required to participate in ongoing professional development and accreditation with the Appraisal Institute of Canada.  Assessors are also required to uphold standards set by the International Association of Assessing Officers (IAAO).
