U-Haul Names Toronto As Top 2010 Canadian Destination

PHOENIX (Feb. 16, 2010) — U-Haul International, Inc., today released the results of the annual 2010 U-Haul National Migration Trend Report titled “The 2010 Top 25 Canadian Destination Cities.” According to moving data reflective of nationwide statistics for calendar year 2010, Toronto was ranked No. 1 for the ninth year in a row, while Calgary came in at second for the seventh year in a row. Montreal and Edmonton  took third and fourth respectively for the second year in a row. Ottawa, Vancouver, London, Kitchener, Hamilton and Mississauga rounded out the top 10 for the second year in a row.

“Since 1955, U-Haul has built a long and proud history of helping families move and store their belongings in Canada,” stated U-Haul President of Phoenix Operations John “J.T.” Taylor. “Now more than ever, we are proud to offer Canadian families who need moving services the increased convenience of our locations, which makes for a shorter distance to travel when moving.  This not only makes their move easier but also has the positive effect of reducing the amount of carbon emissions released into the atmosphere and saves our customers money.”

The ranking reflects destinations for movers traveling more than 50 miles and considers every city in the country, regardless of size. However, the data is not stated as a percentage of population and is not reflective of overall growth.
