The Department of Environment was a part of the Government of New Brunswick. It was charged with planning land use, zoning development and waste management as well as the enforcement of environmental legislation and regulations.

It was created in its current form on February 14, 2006 when it was separated from the Department of Environment and Local Government. It has however existed in this form on previous occasions.

It was first formed by Premier Richard Hatfield when he took office following the 1970 election. In 2000, then Premier Bernard Lord fused it with the Department of Municipalities to create the aforementioned Department of Environment and Local Government only to split them back in two six years later.
