Analysis

PUBLISHED - Sep 27, 2017

In the second quarter of 2017, net migration into Alberta totaled 5,486, compared with a net inflow of 6,713 in the same quarter of 2016, which translates into a decline of 18.3%. Net inter-provincial migration into Alberta was -4,914 in the second quarter of 2017, an improvement over the outflow of -6,010 people seen a year earlier. Net international migration was 10,400 in the second quarter of 2017, down from the 12,723 net international migrants entering Alberta in the second quarter of 2016. To put these numbers into context, Alberta's 2017 Q2 modest net inflow of 5,486 people was still the fourth highest level of people migrating to any province, though well behind the 57,779 moving to Ontario, Canada's leading province in this measure.
