More than 213,000 Quebecers, or about 2.8 per cent of the province's population, changed administrative regions of residence between 2009 and 2010. As was the case for the past ten years, the areas neighbouring Montréal benefited the most from interregional migration. Between 2009 and 2010, the Laurentides, Lanaudière, Laval and Montérégie regions were most popular, as their population increased by 0.95, 0.94, 0.74 and 0.46 per cent, respectively, due to migratory exchanges. Seven other administrative regions posted gains in interregional migration, including Gaspésie–Îles-de-la-Madeleine (+0.15 per cent) for the first time in more than 10 years. Six areas posted losses in interregional migration, with Montréal registering the largest loss as 1.28 per cent of its residents moved to other administrative regions.
