This blog is the second in a series of two looking at population flows. CUR’s first blog looked at where Millennials were moving to and from across Canada. The focus of this blog is on net population flows in and out of municipalities within Ontario by generation in the 12 months ending July 1, 2019.
In other words, we are focusing on net intraprovincial migration flows – the difference between the number of people moving in an out of municipalities from within Ontario.
The Net Population Outflow from the Toronto CMA Was Sizeable Again in 2019
Figure 1 shows that municipalities within the Toronto Census Metropolitan Area (CMA) had a sizeable net outflow of people moving within the province in the 12-month periods ending on July 1, 2019. Net outflows were largest for the city of Toronto and the region of Peel.
