Description:
The Department of Justice and Consumer Affairs is a part of the Government of New Brunswick. It is charged with the protection of the public interest and, as such, oversees the insurance industry, financial institutions, pensions and rental housing.

The department was established on February 14, 2006 when Premier Bernard Lord restructured government. It was created out of necessity as Lord wanted to appoint Brad Green, the only lawyer in his caucus, as Minister of Health. In order to facilitate this the Office of the Attorney General, which Green continued to occupy as Health Minister, was severed from the Department of Justice which was in turn renamed the Department of Justice and Consumer Affairs.

On October 3, 2006, new Premier Shawn Graham named T. J. Burke as both Attorney General and Minister of Justice and Consumer Affairs, however in legislation to realign government departments passed on March 2, 2007 the Office of the Attorney General and the Department of Justice and Consumer Affairs remained separate entities.
