As someone who lived in the greater Toronto area 5 years ago and moved to Moncton, here are my thoughts.
Housing, both rental and purchase are cheaper. a 2 bedroom apartment will rent for 850 per month. You can buy a semi detached (called a duplex here) for 160k. They typically do not have garages. A detached house ranges based on size, but a 1800 ft2 3 bedroom is 250k. A very nice "executive" detached home is 350k - 400k. Keep in mind that most people can't afford a 400k house here. Property taxes are high. a 250 - 300k house will run you 4000 a year in property tax. Electricity rates are high (although I know that Ontario's have gone up a lot). Expect 300 per month for electricity and water/sewer.
Outside of the cost of living, the negative is the school system. Slow curriculum, lots of students of parents that don't value education, and many teachers who shouldn't be teachers (teachers don't have to go to teachers college in New Brunswick to become teachers).
I also viewed French as a positive when I moved here but after 5 years you get very frustrated by seeing the provincial government make French a priority vs. trying to build an economy or educate students in science and math.
I'm actually looking to leave the province with my kids as I don't feel this is the right place to have them grow up.

Hi, please advise. I am barely surviving in Ontario and was hoping to move to New Brunswick as the cost of living is cheaper. By the comments it appears not. Can one actually live on minimum wage? Is there work? Average rental cost for 3 bedroom? Utilities cost? Utilities here are just as much as the rent is, can't do it anymore.
#Joann on Sep 19, 2016 :
Is the cost of living index being increased in Moncton New Brunswick this year? If so wh3n?
#Jc on Sep 18, 2016 :
I agree....this does not represent how expensive it is to live here and how little we make. My husband and i have full time professional jobs and are barely surviving here.

Of course the average income is going be higher than minimum wage. People earning minimum wage are going to be on the very low end, well under average.
#Anonymous on Sep 01, 2014 :
What about medical expense ? Dentist? Haircuts? Car insurance, health insurance? Apartment ins ? Pet food and care ?The average income AFTER taxes is not 29,000! That would suggest a higher paying job than minimum wage. I am a R.A working w. Seniors and special care individuals, I have certification and training and BEFORE taxes reported 26,000 and worked a full time schedule. I'm a single parent as well. If yer going to report the cost of living ,do your homework, because whatnot reported IS NOT the average !
