Economic growth to prompt western migration

TD Bank economist predicts Central and Eastern Canada will experience high unemployment rates.


A recent study on the health of provincial economies predicts more people will migrate west in search of jobs.

TD Economist Sonya Gulati explains that the eastern-central Canada exodus is due in part to individuals seeking to improve their standard of living.

A combination of improving job market conditions and relatively low jobless rates support the studies predictions.

The study said that British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan would receive the bulk of the migratory job seekers.
