New Brunswick: The province tops the list of most U-Haul traffic

According to a recent report by U-Haul, a truck rental company, New Brunswick has seen the largest growth in one-way U-Haul vehicle traffic in 2022.

The company claims this is an indication that the move to the east will be common in 2022.

“There are many reasons why people load U-Haul trucks and head to New Brunswick,” Devin Mitchell, president of Atlantic Canada U-Haul, said in a press release. “Over the last year we have seen more people move to New Brunswick and the rest of the Maritimes as people are looking for affordable housing and a comfortable lifestyle. The lack of affordable real estate in other provinces is pushing people east.”

New Brunswick saw the largest net profit on one-way U-Haul vehicle traffic in 2022, the company announced in a news release on Jan. 9. That is in stark contrast to last year, when New Brunswick saw its biggest net loss from all provinces.

In 2022, incoming traffic will account for 51.1% of all one-way U-Haul trucks to and from New Brunswick.

In the company’s 2021 rankings, Alberta comes out on top. But by 2022, Alberta is last, accounting for 49.5% of traffic to and from the province.

“People are trying to find the most affordable places with the lowest cost of living while still having access to the great outdoor amenities Canada is known for,” he said in a press release.
