Numbeo data seems about right. If you listen to the lifelong maritimers who tend to not travel much, they make it sound like Moncton is terrifying, dangerous, and has the social problems of Vancouver's downtown eastside. If you're from any city of >500,000 you won't bat an eye at anything you see in Moncton or anywhere in the maritimes for that matter.

It's a small city going through a bit of growing pain during a pandemic, but it's not any less safe than anywhere else.

Hi, my wife and I with my 7 year old daughter are move to Moncton. I would like to know where people like to live? Where the properties higher and lower in price? What is the average rent for 2-3 bedroom house in case we rent instead of owning? How about crime? Which areas should be avoided? Sorry, I got so many questions, just doing my due diligence for my family. Thanks in advance!

Worried about car stolen % is in accurate since the last few years almost a car a day gets stolen from Moncton/Dieppe area even other sites show 65% increase in just the last year for stolen vehicles in Moncton area I would have to say being assaulted % also seems low for the last few years as well as cars being broken into. These numbers must not have been updated for 2019 they are tooo low most of them.

Bonjour Sophie. Moncton and Dieppe are both very safe, neither really have any notoriously bad areas. The bad stuff happens more in the small towns south/southwest of Moncton itself (Riverview, Hillsborough, Salisbury). If you use common sense you should not have any problems at all in Moncton/Dieppe.

If you're looking for a predominantly French-speaking area, definitely look anywhere in Dieppe. If you don't mind a 20-minute commute to Moncton and like small towns with nice landscapes, Memramcook is very scenic, historic and about 90% French also. If you prefer a more urban environment, consider the area near Université de Moncton/hôpital Dumont or downtown Moncton, maybe 50% of people can speak French (to varying degrees). It's not for everyone, but I love it here!

Hi. Hiw safe is it in dieppe. Snd in moncton which area are safe to live in for s french women?

The only real dangers are wandering around at night in the neighbouring small towns - mostly Hillsborough and Salisbury - if you're LBGTQ, African or French-speaking. Shocking to see confederate flags all over the place in those towns. Moncton/Dieppe itself is very much safe and people are generally open and tolerant, much much better than 20-30 years ago.

Comments below are simply individual opinions and the attached map is not accurate. Moncton has its share of property crimes and thwy occur sporadically in any area. Therw are no bad areas to stay away from. It is a very safe smaller city of less than 100 thousand. Impaired drivers lster at night would be your biggest threat. There is less crime in Moncton now than in the 90s.
