With the economic recovery well under way, 2010 had a significant pickup in interprovincial migration. Roughly 1% of Canadians (337,000) were on the move. This was 45,000 more than in 2009 and the largest share of population since 1998. As the economy matures toward a slow expansion phase, we forecast a slight easing in gross interprovincial migration.
In relative terms, Manitoba and P.E.I. will continue to shed the most residents, while other Atlantic provinces hover near balanced positions.
