Changes in population from movement within Canada

Some 13,813 people moved to Ontario from other provinces in the fourth quarter of 2022, up 11.5% from a year earlier. More people moving from British Columbia and Quebec made up the bulk of this increase.

A total of 21,124 people left the province for elsewhere in Canada in the fourth quarter, an increase of 9.4% from the same period in 2021. More people leaving for Alberta accounted for most of this increase.
