Ontario has recorded the largest population outflow since the 1980s
In the second quarter of 2021, more than 123,000 people migrated within Canada, changing their provinces. This is the most significant jump in interprovincial migration recorded in the last 30 years. The majority of the people – almost 12,000 people left Ontario, starting a new life in other provinces. The outflow of people from Ontario to other regions may be the result of many institutions shifting to online during the pandemic. Many can now perform their professional duties without being physically present at the workplace, which frees them from expensive urban real estate and attracts them to provinces with lower prices.
