According to data from Statistics Canada, 38,714 people migrated to Vancouver in 2009. This includes people moving internationally, as well as within Canada. Surprisingly, the same data reveals 36,892 people left the Vancouver census area that year, for a net migration effect of a mere 1,732 people. In-migration and out-migration in Vancouver have actually had a negative impact on population since 2000, with more people leaving than arriving. That trend was finally reversed in 2008 as migration in and out of the city netted an additional 2,669 people.
