U-Haul announces Penticton as number 19 on the list of Canadian cities for growth

The position is based on U-Haul’s analysis of migration trends for 2018.

Penticton is now the number 19 Growth City in Canada, according to U-Haul® data analyzing Canadian migration trends for 2018.

U-Haul calculates growth based on the net gain of one-way U-Haul trucks entering a city versus leaving that city during a calendar year. Migration trends data is compiled from more than two-million one-way U-Haul transactions that occur annually in the U.S. and Canada.

Penticton arrivals of one-way U-Haul trucks were up 11 percent while departures were up two percent from the city’s 2017 numbers. Arrivals accounted for 53 percent of all one-way U-Haul traffic in Penticton to make it number 19 on U-Haul’s list.

Penticton did not make an appearance on the list last year, but was a net-gain city in 2016, with a number 18 ranking on that year’s list.

Kingston tops the growth list for 2018, with Victoria, Trenton, Halifax and Ottawa rounding out the leading five cities. Ottawa topped the rankings in 2017. Visit myuhaulstory.com to view the complete top 25 U-Haul Canadian Growth Cities for 2018.
