An annual listing of U-Haul Canadian destinations has seen Huntsville break into the top 25.

The list created by the rental firm is viewed as a good predictor to the relative economic health of the communities that are rated.

For 2018 Huntsville was ranked 24th. The top-ranked city was in Ontario as well, with Kingston being rated in the top spot, and Victoria, BC coming in second.

Huntsville had not made the top 25 in the previous five years. The only Muskoka area town to crack the list in that time was Gravenhurst in 2015, coming in at 17th spot.

The list is based on the net gain of one-way U-Haul trucks entering a town or city versus leaving that city during a calendar year.
