Florenceville-Bristol is a town in the northwest part of New Brunswick, Canada. The town is located on the banks of the Saint John River in Carleton County.

The Town of Florenceville-Bristol is New Brunswick's newest town, amalgamating July 1, 2008. The new town has 1,539 residents as of 2006 (1,639 by 2011) and consists of the two former villages of Florenceville and Bristol, 5km further north. Because of the distance between the two centres of population, the new town covers an area of 15.61 km2 (6.03 sq mi).

Its economy is mainly based on the production of potatoes and the manufacture of frozen French fries or potato chips. There is also a lumber mill. The town has its own small airport.
