Moncton has the largest metropolitan population in New Brunswick and the second largest in the Maritime Provinces. One of Canada’s top magazines, Chatelaine has named Moncton as one of the best places to live and work in Canada. With a population of approximately 124,000 in Greater Moncton, of which one third is Francophone (French speaking) and two thirds Anglophone (English speaking), Moncton residents take advantage of one of the lowest cost of living environments in the country.
The City of Moncton is an attractive location for immigrants looking at Canada as a place to move their families because of existing immigration support, its excellent quality of life, low crime rate, health care system and economic opportunities.
In the Moncton region you will find two world-class hospitals, three universities including the largest French-language university outside Québec Université de Moncton, multiple parks for walking/biking and many four-season entertainment opportunities. Moncton is close to the spectacular Bay of Fundy and some of the warmest beaches north of Virginia.
Historically, Moncton has been a transportation hub; lately, it has become known as a centre for telecommunications. Its population of 125,000 is rapidly growing along with its Jewish community. The Moncton community has recently experienced growth in its Jewish population, with an influx of young Jewish people attracted by the expanding government and university sectors. Moncton is now the second largest Jewish community in Atlantic Canada, boasting approximately 100 families. The community is served by an Orthodox Synagogue Tiferes Israel.
