Canadians on the move end their journeys in Calgary more than any other city

More people are packing their worldly possessions into a U-Haul and heading off to a new life in Calgary than any other Canadian city, the company says.

The company released its Top 10 Canadian Destination Cities for 2014 list earlier this week showing Cowtown at the top.

Calgary’s nearest big city neighbour to the north, Edmonton, also made the list, coming in at third place, with Montreal between the two Albertan cities and Toronto at number four.

“Calgary being number one doesn’t surprise me,” U-Haul’s southern Alberta marketing president Gordon Anderson said in a release.

“If you search why to move to Calgary, there are so many reasons. It’s a nice, clean city. We have the highest amount of head offices, per capita, than any Canadian city. We’re ranked one of the best cities in the world to live in. We’re the sunniest city in the world. It’s a very high quality of life here, and consequently it’s a great place to raise a family.

A quick search of the Alberta College of Physicians and Surgeons website for doctors who speak Afrikaans, gives a total of 107 for Calgary and 49 for Edmonton :).
