We are considering moving to Fredericton from Edmonton AB. I am wondering if there are any people from Alberta who have moved there who I can contact to see the difference in weather, the cost of living and so on. Alberta is very dry so minus 10 so here will feel different than minus 10 there. Is there a lot of snow? Having lived in a few provinces I realize that we don't get too much snow in Edmonton compared to others. What are the schools like? I notice the Catholic schools are private and having never been in the public system are they much different? Do groceries cost the same without the 13% ?
Thank you.

Our economy in Fredericton is pretty steady due to us being a government/university/military city. Our cost of living is cheaper then Alberta but our wages are lower too.

Our weather is a toss up because we get wicked cold weather from the north in the winter but if we get weather from the south bringing mild ocean temps in the winter it can be OK.

Our taxes in New Brunswick are 15%

I can't really account for the schools here vs Alberta because I'm a born New Brunswicker.
