Ny parish in western Värmlands län (county) is part of historical Jösse härad (district) and is included in the modern Arvika kommun (municipality).  With the municipal reform of 1862 Ny parish became responsible for only ecclesiastical affairs and Ny landskommun (rural municipality) responsible for civil matters. In 1952, Ny landskommun was merged into Älgå landskommun and, since 1971, it is included in Arvika kommun.

The parish had 834 inhabitants in 2000 with some of the populated area Åmotfors included.  It is a wooded area with a number of small lakes. 

(Use caution, other parishes have similar names including one in Värmlands.)
