The Tobique Narrows Dam is a hydroelectric dam built on the Tobique River in the Canadian province of New Brunswick and operated by NB Power corporation. Its power house has a capacity of 20 megawatts.

The dam and power house were built between 1951-1953 near the confluence of the Tobique River with the Saint John River, several kilometres north of the village of Perth-Andover and 35 km upriver from the Beechwood Dam.

Highway 105 crosses the Tobique River along the top of the dam. A fish ladder helps migratory fish circumvent the 24 m head of the dam. The dam spans the river between Perth Parish on the south side, and the Tobique First Nation Indian Reserve on the north side, both in Victoria County.
