Chatham-Kent ranked 7th on U-Haul's List of Canadian Growth Cities in 2023, and is number 1 from Ontario featured by the same list.
Chatham has also ranked among the top 25 growth cities on this list in 2022, 2021, 2020, 2019, 2017, and 2016. Growth Cities are calculated by the net gain of arriving one-way U-Haul trucks over departing one-way U-Haul trucks for a calendar year. With more than 2.5 million one-way U-Haul truck rental transactions, the data collected provides a comprehensive overview of where people are moving to.
As more people choose Chatham-Kent as a place to visit, live and invest, the Municipality of Chatham-Kent and community partners continue work to ensure Chatham-Kent is a welcoming community for all and continues to grow sustainably for future generations. As part of these municipal efforts, Community Attraction and Promotion works with community partners to promote the benefits of life in Chatham-Kent and helps to welcome new residents to the area. Being listed as the top growth city across Canada by U-Haul in 2023 is a clear reflection of these community-wide efforts.
