The Greater Moncton area now boasts the best rate of in-migration east of Ontario, due in part to an excellent quality of life and low cost of living, which is among the lowest among urban areas in North America.

I was in the banking business for 20 years and worked with accounting firms of all types and sizes. When I made a career change 10 years ago one decision that was very easy to make was to use a local CA firm. I had seen first hand the importance of receiving personal, uninterrupted accounting and financial advice.Jean Jacques Normand, President, Plaza Chevrolet Pontiac Buick GMC
