Moncton is becoming very expensive to live, especially rent.
Anonymous on Oct 22, 2021:
Cost of living in Moncton is WAY TOO EXPENSIVE. Don't move here because rent here is between 900-1200 for a 1 bedroom, 1200-1600 for a 2 bedroom and 1700-2200 for a 3 bedroom.

I am an accepted student of NBCC-Moncton for this Fall 2021. I am interested in getting a single apartment closer to my campus. Any information pertaining to the cost of living especially rent will be very vital for me. Are the apartment furnished or furniture are purchased? Kindly help me with details.

I'm planning relocating to NB, but don't know about the cost of living there and the possibility of getting reasonable job and making savings as a bachelor.

I lived in New Brunswick for 6 years in a small town outside of Moncton and loved it. I shared a two and a half bedroom apartment for $800 a month, including utilities and laundry. I found it very affordable. It is certainly not true that teachers in NB don't need to be trained. They need a Bachelors of Education just like everywhere else and, also like everywhere else, teaching jobs are still tough to get. Unfortunately, it is true that healthcare here is underfunded. This is not the place to move if you want warm weather, bustling urban life, and lots of shopping. But it is a great place if you want to be out of the rat race in a place with a beautiful landscape and an awesome, grassroots art and music scene.

Moved to Gatineau, Quebec to be closer to our adult children and grand kids after working/living near Ottawa, Ontario for 25 years. Thought New Brunswick might be good for us retired folk but now, reading here, guess otherwise. New Brunswick sounds pretty much like Quebec in sense that government is corrupt; half of government is in Mafia's pocket, the other half belong to Hells Angels MC Club. and taxes are quite high, healthcare is almost non-existent, but hydro is likely one of lowest priced in Canada. Housing here much more affordable than across the river in Ottawa where hydro and property taxes are sky-high. Seems to be at point now where very few places really left in Canada, fit to raise children. People saying B.C sucks now because of the Asians and high prices, Ontario isn't far behind now. I've been through Toronto several times; not a nice place! The Canadian version of Chicago or Detroit! Quebec has its ups and downs especially now with alarming influx of illegal immigrants tramping across into Quebec into RCMP's welcoming arms. Now New Brunswick not sounding much better. Where can someone go to live "post-retirement" in Canada to have good quality of life?

Alby is really upset about life everywhere, it seems. Moved to Moncton / Riverview from Winterpeg. Prop tax is 2500 on 4 bedroom, 2 story, electric heat is 270 per month max. So far cheaper than Winnipeg, and warmer, less dry in New Brunswick winter and friendler. I won't even dignify a resonse to her "Asian" prejudice.
Pierre-Luc on Mar 09, 2019:
Alby, sounds like you're looking for an all-white city (?!) with a third-world cost of living, first-world services funded by an ultra-low tax revenue, so you can move to this mythical place and grace it with your chill, tolerant, ever-positive vibe. Good luck with all that.

We moved here (Moncton NB)from BC in 2018 because BC is overrun with Asians and because of this the cost of a house has gone completely out of range and especially now with the tight mortgage rules it makes it near impossible to qualify. An entry level house on the outskirts of greater Vancouver is over a million dollars. Also auto insurance rates are very high in BC also due to the infestation of asians who are horrible drivers. To be clear I do not like Asians and lets not kid ourselves....they dont like us either. Thats why they all move to an area and take it over and price us out eventually. We decided to move to Moncton NB. The cost of housing here is much cheaper. We bought a large house on 2 acres, 10 minutes to the city for just over 300k. Sound great on paper but after living here for 6 months I can now comment on why NB sucks ass. The Government here is criminal and they are extorting money from the residents. Here are some examples. Yes housing is cheaper but property taxes are very high. A 250k house in Moncton that is not owner occupied can have property taxes of over $9,000 per year. Sales tax here is 15% on everything, even on utilities. In BC we only paid 5% tax on a lot of things such as utilities. Not here they rape you with 15% on everything including the purchase of a coffee all the way to a vehicle. Utilities here are shockingly high. When I got the first electrical bill I called because I thought there was a mistake. Our bill for 1 month was $400 and thats without AC or Heat on. In BC our hydro bill for a larger house was $60/mo. Our Enbridge gas bill her in NB was over $500 for one month and we barely used any gas. Its completely criminal the way the East Coast is governed. Its one big cash grab out here. So dont be fooled by the low purchase price of a house. They will make up for it everywhere else. Another thing is there are basically no family doctors out here. The health care system is 3rd world at best so hope you dont need medical attention. If you do you will have to go to the hospital and wait on average 8-10 hours to be looked at. Also winters are cold and long. We will stay here up to 2 years and then we're getting the hell out. To summarize Canada Sucks pretty much across the board in different ways depending on where you are. We all live in Tax farms and we dont have much of a choice.
