    Reasons Why People Move from Ontario to Alberta

    People hire a moving company in Ontario to relocate to Alberta for good reasons:

    • Here, people have a higher purchasing power (25% more), compared with Ontario.
    • The minimum wage is also higher at $15 compared to $14 in Ontario.
    • You'll be paying much less for rent in this city – a one-bedroom apartment costs $1,070 per month here versus $1,723 in Ontario.
    • People also spend less on a public transport day pass in Alberta which costs $10.75 compared with $13 in Ontario.
    • You also have to pay 15% in provincial sales tax and federal sales tax when shopping for goods in Ontario, but not in Alberta.
    • Forbes and Mercer Global Financial ranked Alberta as the cleanest city in 2007 and 2014.
    • People are also generally much nicer (this is not a statistic, but we experienced this firsthand).

    Pros and Cons of Living in Alberta


    • The minimum wage in Alberta ($15) is higher than in other Canadian provinces.
    • Even entry-level workers are paid better than their counterparts in other provinces.
    • The seasonally adjusted unemployment rate here was 5.7% in 2023 which is not that much.
    • Real estate costs and rent rates are fairly affordable.
    • You don't have to pay any provincial sales tax on goods purchased.
    • The tax policy is also very relaxed – you only have to pay 10% if you earn up to $131,200, and it can go up to 15% if you earn $314,928 or more.
    • Public transport, healthcare, and education are also generally more affordable.


    • People tend not to love the long, chilly winters (they can get brutal).
    • The roads can get slick in the winter.
    • You'll also have to deal with huge potholes on more frequently traveled routes.
    • The region has lots of nice beaches and lakes, but no large oceans, so if that's what you're looking for, you will be disappointed.
    • Oil, gas, and mining accounts for 23.2% of the province's economy; it's all good until the oil industry goes bust. This boom-bust cycle can be hurtful for most.

    Moving Yourself vs. Hiring Moving Company in Canada

    You may be tempted to make the move by yourself, and you’ve probably been told that it will be cheaper that way. But you’d be wrong. Yes, you get to do things at your own pace and in your style, but it won’t be cheaper if you look at the big picture.

    To start, you’ll have to take a couple of days off from work to prepare for long-distance moving. You must categorize stuff, then pack your belongings, furniture and personal items, label them, move them (you'll have to rent a truck for that), unpack the stuff at the destination, and then sort your things at your new home.

    Household moving is a lot of work! And what if something breaks or if you get injured? There are so many things that can go wrong.

    Would recommend you to hire a commercial moving crew instead. You don't have to do manual labor, buy packing materials, take time off for preparations, or rent a truck. Our best movers will take care of everything professionally so that make your move without stress. For our clients, we provide additional services, including packing and 1-month free moving storage in our own warehouses with no hidden fees!
