The New Brunswick Scottish was an infantry regiment of the Canadian Army.

Founded as The South New Brunswick Regiment in 1946 by the amalgamation of The Saint John Fusiliers (M.G.) and The New Brunswick Rangers, the regiment acquired its present title in 1946 shortly after establishment. In 1954, as a result of the Kennedy Report on the Reserve Army, this regiment was amalgamated with Carleton and York Regiment to form 1st Battalion The Royal New Brunswick Regiment (Carleton and York).

The New Brunswick Scottish were allied to the King's Own Scottish Borderers and were kitted with a blue glengarry c/w diced border, scarlet doublet, white sporran with two black points, scarlet & black hose, blue doublets for pipers and tartan trews for bandsmen, with full dress only for pipers and bandsmen.

The regiment perpetuated the 26th, 55th, 115th, 145th and 236th Battalions and 7th M.G. Battalion C.E.F and held its final Order of Precedence as 30.
