Welcome to Hanwell

Welcome to Hanwell Rural Community

Welcome to the official website of Hanwell Rural Community.  Extending westward, along NB Route 102, from the Fredericton City limits to Longs Creek, and southwest, along NB Route 640, to Yoho Lake, Hanwell Rural Community is one of New Brunswick’s fastest growing municipalities.

Hanwell was first incorporated as a Rural Community on May 23, 2014, under Regulation 2014-30 of the New Brunswick Municipalities Act.  Part of the Kingsclear Local Service District was annexed to it on January 1, 2023, because of the province’s municipal reform.  Presently, Hanwell Rural Community has a population of approximately 7000.  Even with the ever-growing presence of businesses and industry, the Council of Hanwell strives to maintain a rural feel, and a family friendly atmosphere in the community, while providing a high level of services to all residents.  “Inspired by Nature” is the community motto.

Hanwell Rural Community is accessed from the Trans Canada Highway (Route 2) at exits 271 and 281.  Thank you for visiting!
