Albert is a provincial electoral district for the Legislative Assembly of New Brunswick, Canada. It was created in 1846 when Albert County was created and its boundaries were the same as the county. It returned two members until 1973 when New Brunswick moved to single member districts and its boundaries were changed to exclude the town of Riverview.

The boundaries were expanded slightly in the 1994 redistribution, taking in a small part of Riverview and again in 2006 when it took in another small part of the town of Riverview. In the 2013 redistribution it added more of Riverview again, as well as the Village of Salisbury.
