Migration Trends: Edmonton is No. 3 U-Haul Canadian Destination City

Edmonton is the No. 3 Canadian Destination City according to the latest U-Haul migration trends report, rising one spot from its ranking last year.

Edmonton saw a 15 percent year-over-year increase in one-way U-Haul truck arrivals in 2017 to remain one of the busiest cities for incoming traffic among do-it-yourself movers.

“Edmonton is one of the most vibrant and prosperous cities in North America,” noted Fred Ward, U-Haul Company of Northern Alberta, Saskatchewan & Northwest Territories president. “Alberta’s capital has undergone a transformative downtown revitalization and has become an extremely attractive home for young families and urban professionals. The housing market is strong and new communities continue to sprout in and around Edmonton.

“Since Edmonton is one of Canada’s fastest growing and most livable cities, we continue to expand our U-Haul neighborhood dealer network and company-owned facilities to serve the demand. The population growth brings the need for more do-it-yourself moving equipment and self-storage, and we are determined to serve this community.”

U-Haul has five Company-owned stores and 25 independent neighborhood dealers currently operating in the Edmonton city limits. Find U-Haul truck and trailer sharing locations in Edmonton at uhaul.com/locations.

Moving Season in Edmonton

U-Haul International, headquartered in Arizona, is counting down its top 10 Canadian Destination Cities as a prelude to “Moving Day” on July 1, one of the busiest dates for residential moves in Canada, and specifically Quebec. The No. 1 Destination City will be announced on June 29 via Twitter @uhaul and on myuhaulstory.com.

Vancouver is the No. 10 Destination City, Kitchener 9, Victoria 8, Hamilton 7, Montreal 6, London 5 and Ottawa 4. Find Destination Cities 11-50 below and be sure to check back throughout the countdown.

Rankings are based on the total number of arriving one-way U-Haul trucks into a city in the past calendar year. Destination Cities reflect the volume and regularity of DIY movers coming into a community. They do not account for departing one-way U-Haul trucks, and thus do not necessarily signify growth like U-Haul Growth Cities rankings.

U-Haul released its top 25 Canadian Growth Cities for 2017 in January.

U-Haul is the authority on migration trends thanks to its expansive network that blankets all 10 Canadian provinces and 50 states in the U.S. The geographical coverage from more than 21,000 U-Haul locations provides a comprehensive overview of where people are moving like no one else in the industry. Migration trends data is compiled from more than 1.7 million one-way U-Haul truck rental transactions that occur annually.
