Fredericton-Nashwaaksis 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.

History[edit]

It was created in 2006 as a result of rapid population growth in the City of Fredericton north of the Saint John River. It includes those parts of the old Fredericton North district that were west of the Westmorland Street Bridge as well as some suburban communities previously in the district of Mactaquac.
