While people seem to be leaving the country's major cities in droves, there are a few Canadian cities that have actually been seeing a big increase in population recently.
People in Canada, the highest ever.
While Canada's population was quickly on the rise between 2019 and 2020, we can't say the same for places like Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver, where the numbers are growing very slowly but the cities are also seeing a record-high for people who are moving away.
Meanwhile, people seem to be flocking to some other, less-assuming places.
The country's top population growth goes to Oshawa, Ontario (up 2.1%).
Next in line in terms of growth are Halifax and Kitchener–Cambridge–Waterloo (both up 2%).
The Canadian city that's the lowest on the growth chart is Thunder Bay, Ontario.
