Record Number Of Canadians Moving To Alberta

I imagine that U-Haul has an inordinate amount of moving trucks sitting in their Alberta depots.

Alberta broke through the four million mark and now has an estimated population of 4,025,074.

Record levels of net international migration and net interprovincial migration to our province spurred population growth to the highest in the nation.

In 2012/2013, Alberta’s population growth was its strongest since the early 1980s.

Alberta mainly benefited from migratory exchanges with certain provinces, with net gains of +22,400 from Ontario, +11,200 from British Columbia, +4,900 from Nova Scotia and +4,200 from Quebec.

Net interprovincial migration in the country was positive for only two provinces. Alberta had a +52,700 increase and in second place, with only +1,800, was Saskatchewan.
