I have such a difficult time finding this accurate. Unlike many major cities, there are less than 100 reviews here for Moncton actually provided.
Its also proven that the majority of people who fill out such surveys do so when they are upset.
EXAMPLE-if you dine at a restaurant and the service is exactly as you expect. Not amazing. Not poor. You dine, pay and leave. Likely to not speak of it.
However, if you happen to get horrible service or awful food.. What happens? We tell everyone! The same thing happens here.

I gain no benefit from sharing this opinion here. I have lived in Moncton for a year with my young family. Moved from a big city. We love it. Darkness and crime is everywhere.

Be kind. Do good and smile. You get from life what you give it.

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.
