City Hall

Saint John City Hall is the centre of municipal government for the City of Saint John. It’s home to the Mayor’s office and Council Chambers, and it’s where these City officials meet to discuss City business. It’s also where Saint John residents can access various City services. 

You’ll find City Hall near the foot of King Street, at 15 Market Square, in uptown Saint John. Visitors must check in at the first floor reception, which is accessible by the main street entrance, or via the pedway system and a newly installed elevator—which will take you to the public areas of the building.

The first City Hall building in Saint John was a wooden structure, built in 1797 at about the same location as the current City Hall, which was built in 1971. In 2020, the City made significant renovations to the building, and moved City operations to the first four floors, which makes City Hall much more visible and accessible.
