Slasher killed and slashed several people in downtown Quebec city recently. Burglaries of parked cars. A father killed his 2 children and killed himself. Lots of unreported domestic violence cases. Abuse of adopted children.

I am considering buying a condo in QC. The flood maps are not all that accurate, nor the sea level maps. I'd like to buy in a high elevation area, away from large flood risk, and low crime. Although there is some info on crime as in this forum, I'd like to know more about what areas are TODAY low risk and low crime. I speak Italian, English and convo French. Though I'm not that concerned with the French, I understand everything and can also read it. I know I'll be fluent in French within two years max. If anyone has good updated info, please share. I am eternally grateful for any info!
PS: If any of you know the high risk flood areas or have experienced flooding, please share not only for my info but for others considering buying. Of course, the far from QC City places are low risk, but would also like to know of other places closer to QC City. Thanks!!

I live in Québec city specifically Limoilou and it's a really safe place. The place as changed a lot in 10 years. Limoilou but also Saint-Roch neighborhoods have been completely renovated. Limoilou in particular is now really family friendly. We had a couple of bike thefts last year but the guys were caught.

We have a couple of beggars but they are not violent. They know they could be in trouble with the Cops if they were too insisting so they keep a low profile.

Like any other city don't get involved with drug dealers and you will be fine. Pot is now legal anyway so just go to the store :)

Very corrupted police. Police here have feelings of invulnerability and think they can do what they want. There's no tools for citizens to complain against them. Lot of corruption and stupidity within politics. Policy similar to USA toward people's privacy.

It’s a quiet city (weather keeps bad hombres out for the most part). There are some sketchy neighborhoods but it’s mainly junkies and drunkards, I haven’t heard of any serious violent crime. A kid got stabbed in the bus a few years ago and it was front page of the news for days.

To the "anonymous" guy who wrote the post of September 17th (just below mine), he wrote the EXACT same thing with the city of Montreal. He literally did a copy/paste. So you can totally ignore this dude, he just wanted to post some crap at random.

I live around Quebec City and I go there all the time since 34 years... day or night, I have NEVER witnessed any crime. Of course, in the news, we may hear a couple of crimes here and there during the year, but this is nothing compared to any other North American cities. This is city has to be in the top 10, safest in the world.

Unlike big cities in the USA, the odds of you seing people begging for money will be next to 0. I mean... I went in Las Vegas during the past years and I was totally in shock when somebody INSISTED to get money from me. This was totally out of the ordinary for me! At that moment, I was like WTF??? I felt like I was living in a different planet!

That is how secure you can feel about visiting Quebec City ;)
