“Alberta has registered interprovincial migration gains of 10,000 or more for five consecutive quarters for the first time since comparable data were made available (1971),” StatCan said.

“Most of Alberta’s population gains through interprovincial migration were due to its exchanges with Ontario and British Columbia. In contrast, British Columbia experienced five consecutive quarters of interprovincial migration losses for the first time since the first quarter of 2013.”

As for other major markets, despite the continuous net loss of interprovincial migration in Ontario, the province posted a smaller net decline in Q3 (down by 5,952), StatCan said.

“Meanwhile, the Atlantic provinces observed a negligible or negative net interprovincial migration, which is a contrast to the trends seen from 2020 to 2022, during the COVID-19 pandemic, when they recorded strong growth from population exchanges with other provinces and territories,” StatCan said.

“This can be largely attributable to the recent decrease in the number of migrants moving from Ontario to the Atlantic provinces.”
