Moncton is a fast growing city. Situated in the hub of Atlantic Canada, only hours away from Prince Edward Island and Halifax Nova Scotia. The downtown has numerous good restaurants and a Saturday Market. The city takes pride in keeping clean streets and lining them with decorative flower pots and gardens. The Avenir centre has hosted many big acts and sports teams. Like many cities, we are experiencing an increase of homelessness and drug use, but it is still a friendly and very safe city. Most people are bilingual, speaking both English and French fluently.

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.
