Welcome to Moncton
Once a major wooden shipbuilding port and then in a slump, Moncton is now the fastest-growing city in the Maritime provinces with the motto: 'I will rise again.' And thanks to a new economy built on transportation and call centers drawn here by the bilingual workforce, it is rising quickly. Its small, redbrick downtown along the glistening banks of the Petitcodiac River has lively pub and restaurant scene. There is also a bustling Acadian farmers market, a couple of worthwhile museums and popular nearby sights like Hopewell Rocks and Magnetic Hill. To top it off, Moncton's event calendar is full in summer.
