Havelock, New Brunswick is a Canadian rural community in Kings County, New Brunswick. Havelock is at the junction of Route 885 and Route 880. There is a small public airport nearby.

The community is situated on a large lime deposit and its extraction has driven the local economy, beginning with a Lafarge cement plant constructed in the 1960s and current mothballed since the early 1990s. Graymont operates a lime quarry and kiln to supply eastern Canada and New England with 300 tonnes per day.
