The shops, pubs, and restaurants of its charming main street are within a stone’s throw of equally charming—and affordable—century homes.

Meet one of our passionate Moncton residents

- Moncton is the perfect community to live, work, and play! It has all the amenities of a large city but the accessibility and friendliness of a smaller town. The family medicine program is well-established and supported by the hospital and community. Family physicians have a strong presence in the hospital, both in delivering full-spectrum care including managing their own in-patients, and in various leadership positions such as being the current chief of staff.

Here, you’re not just a number - the resident cohort is a small cohesive group with always one-on-one preceptor-styled teaching. Moncton is also central along Bay of Fundy, with fantastic opportunities for hiking and kayaking in national parks a short drive away. Whether you’re into a vibrant city scene or engaging in outdoor adventures, it’s easy to find something to suit every lifestyle.
