Route 105 is a highway in New Brunswick, Canada; running from Route 10 in Youngs Cove to Route 108 in Grand Falls, mostly along the east and north banks of the Saint John River, for a distance of 307 kilometres.
From Youngs Cove, Route 105 follows a former routing of the Trans-Canada Highway along the south shore of Grand Lake to Jemseg. From there, the route continues north, following the east bank of the Saint John River, to Fredericton. Within Fredericton, the highway is known as Riverside Drive in the district of Barkers Point and Union Street in Devon. The Nashwaaksis area is bypassed by a four-lane divided expressway known as Ring Road, which connects to the Westmorland Street Bridge.
West of Fredericton, Route 105 continues along the east bank of the river, through Douglas and Keswick Ridge, crossing the Mactaquac Headpond. Between Mactaquac and Nackawic, the road was rerouted after construction of the dam and passes through areas such as Bear Island. The road changes direction to a north-south orientation as the river changes course between Nackawic and Woodstock. The Grafton Bridge, near the junction with Route 585, provides access to the town of Woodstock. Continuing north along the river's east bank, Route 105 passes through Hartland, Florenceville, Bristol, Bath and Perth-Andover. Crossing the Tobique River using the Tobique Narrows Dam, Route 105 passes through several more small farming communities and terminates at Grand Falls.

Route 105 was first numbered in 1965, on a section between Fredericton and Hartland that was formerly known as Route 21. When the Trans-Canada Highway bridge at Florenceville was completed in 1968, Route 2 was rerouted to the other side of the Saint John River and Route 105 was extended north to Perth-Andover. It was further extended north to Grand Falls in 1984, when it replaced Route 125.
With the Trans-Canada Highway project between Fredericton and Moncton completed in 2001, Route 105 was extended eastward from Fredericton as well, taking over the former Route 2 between Fredericton and the Route 10 junction at Youngs Cove.
