Fredericton-Fort Nashwaak was a provincial electoral district for the Legislative Assembly of New Brunswick, Canada. It was first created in the 2006 redrawing of electoral districts and was first used in the general election later that year. Its last MLA was Pam Lynch of the Progressive Conservative Party of New Brunswick.

History[edit]

The district was created in the 2006 redistribution although, somewhat confusingly, a district by the same name existed immediately prior to this. The district combined those portions of the old Fredericton-Fort Nashwaak district north of the Saint John River with approximately half of the Fredericton North district (those portions east of the Westmorland Street Bridge) with suburban areas from the old riding of Grand Lake as well as a large part of unpopulated territory also from Grand Lake.
