New Brunswick Top Moving Destination

British Columbia and New Brunswick are the leading growth provinces for do-it-yourself movers, says a U-Haul analysis of migration patterns from 2020. Nine of 10 provinces saw a net gain in U-Haul customers in 2020, with only Ontario witnessing more DIY movers leave its borders. British Columbia built upon its 2019 growth with a 3.3 per cent increase in arrivals versus a 2.6 per cent increase in departures in 2020. New Brunswick, a net-loss province in 2019, saw 22.7 per cent more arrivals year-over-year compared to just 7.8 per cent more departures. Aside from New Brunswick, Nova Scotia (4.4 per cent arrivals increase, 1.7 per cent departures decrease) boasts the largest year-over-year turnaround after ranking ninth in 2019.
