Analysis

PUBLISHED - Jun 15, 2017

In the first quarter of 2017, net migration into Alberta totaled 4,693, compared with a net inflow of 10,292 in the same quarter of 2016, which translates into a fall of 54.4%. Net inter-provincial migration into Alberta was -2,392 in the first quarter of 2017, down from the outflow of -1,525 people seen a year earlier. Net international migration was 7,085 in the first quarter of 2017, down from the +11,817 net international migrants entering Alberta in the first quarter of 2016. To put these numbers into context, Alberta's 2017 Q1 modest net inflow of 4,693 people was still the fourth highest level of people migrating to any province, though well behind the 32,787 moving to Ontario, Canada's leading province in this measure.
