History of Downtown Moncton Centre-ville Inc..
A BIA is a geographically defined metropolitan area comprising primarily non-residential properties. The BIA concept makes it possible for companies and property owners to work cooperatively to manage downtown as a source and business destination. Promotional campaigns, beautification, government lobbying, cooperative advertising, clean and safe programs, and parking and transportation issues are a few of the regions of concern that a BIA organization may deal with.
Moncton’s BIA boundaries are as follows:
East of Vaughan Harvey; south of Park Street (Vaughan Harvey into High Street); south of Dufferin (High to Archibald); south of Austin (Robinson into Church); east of the railway line, north to Mountain Road, west of Botsford Street; north of St. George (adjacent non residential properties) to west of King Street; south of Harper Lane; west of Hall’s Creek into the Petitcodiac River.

History of St. George Street
St. George street has witnessed a remarkable evolution in the previous years. Many still remember this road has being almost completely commercial with hardly any residential buildings. Back then, it was all too recognizable to observe a broad assortment of family businesses, which range from grocery stores, pharmacies, family restaurants and laundromats. Did you know that Assumption Life opened its first offices on St. George street? So did the first Canadian Tire store ever to start in Moncton. St. George street has become fully integrated in the downtown area.
Residents and business owners remain very attached to St. George road now. They appreciate the culture and history that’s appropriate for this part of downtown Moncton. Many were born, grew up, studied, worked and live in the same neighbourhood. Back then, it was common to see many families not just working companies, but also living in these buildings that housed their enterprise. Many lived on the 2nd floor when conducting business downstairs. DMCI is well aware of the special bond which tie people to their origins. We’ll keep working with them, all of the while, respecting this heritage that they hold dear to their hearts.
