The New Brunswick Building Officials Association (NBBOA) is a self-governing, volunteer group of individuals involved or interested in the building inspection field.

In May 1976 the inaugural meeting of the NBBOA was held in Moncton with approximately forty building officials from across the province in attendance. All those attending were in unanimous accord with the organizing of a provincial association. Mr. A. R. Ellis, a building official from Saint John, was elected as the founding president at this meeting.
