A rural community is a type of municipality in the Canadian Province of New Brunswick.

New Brunswick had five rural communities that had a cumulative population of 11,310 and an average population of 2,262 in the 2011 Census.[1] New Brunswick's largest and smallest rural communities are Beaubassin East and Saint-André with populations of 6,200 and 819 respectively.[1]

The former Village of Kedgwick and the Local Service District of Grimmer form the newest Rural Community of Kedgwick on 1 July 2012.[2] This follows a plebiscite on 3 October 2011 that approved the proposed amalgamation.[3]
