In 1763, Germans from Pennsylvania, USA, established a settlement here and named it Bend. The name was changed in 1930. Railway, highway, and air transportation industries are all very developed. It is the land transportation hub of the region and has been nicknamed "hub city". Moncton is one of the most important tourist attractions in the Atlantic Provinces.
