Moncton is in New Brunswick’s southeast along the Petitcodiac River. It is in the center of Canada’s Atlantic provinces and is often referred to as “the hub” because of its easy access to ports, railways, airports, and highways leading both into the interior of the continent and out across the Atlantic.
It is the most populous city in New Brunswick when you count its metropolitan market, which includes the cities of Dieppe and Riverview.
Its origin goes back to a small Acadian village, before their deportation in 1755 to Louisiana. The village was then empty until 1766 when 8 families arrived to cultivate the region. The city is named after Lieutenant-Colonel Monckton who led the capture of Fort Beauséjour in 1755.
It was incorporated as a village in 1855 but lost that status in 1862 when shipbuilding techniques changed to steam rather than sailing and moved elsewhere. It became a village again in 1875, and then a city in 1890.
