Street Naming and Civic Addressing

All property owners are responsible for posting civic numbers on their homes and buildings. Your civic address should be highly visible, day or night. This ensures that you receive the support and services you need from first responders, delivery personnel and service providers without unnecessary delays.

The Geographic Information Systems (GIS) service maintains the official civic addresses and street names records for the City of Saint John. Civic addresses are assigned based on the Province of New Brunswick’s 9-1-1 guidelines.

Names of public and private streets within municipal boundaries are approved by Common Council.
