This is where Canadians are moving when they can't afford Toronto or Vancouver anymore
If you've ever wondered where you and others might end up after being priced out of the housing market in your big city, a new report may be able to give you some idea.
Popular moving truck rental company U-Haul has used its own data to create a list of the top cities and towns that Canadians internally migrate to when they can no longer afford to live in urban centres where the cost of housing is untenable for many renters and would-be homebuyers.
The report surveyed millions of U-Haul transactions from more than 22,000 centres across Canada last year.
U-Haul spokespeople say in a release that the current pressures of urban growth — such as increased cost of living — have driven many residents to the growing cities around top-rated regions like Vancouver and Toronto.
North Vancouver, B.C. topped the list "Canadian growth cities" for 2019, while Ontario locales like Belleville, Brockville and Hunstville comprised 19 of the list's 25 spots.
The list, in full, is as follows:
