Canada's Immigration Website Crashes As Trump Victory Looms

Let's Go!

Let's Go!

As a Trump victory began to look more and more likely, it appeared that many Americans no longer wished to be citizens of their great nation, as the Canadian immigration website went down.

Seriously, you just can't make this stuff up!

We Want Out!

The website which handles Canada's immigration enquiries and applications, experienced a massive amount of traffic and continues to suffer issues, as American citizens apparently want out of a Trump-led nation.

That's Not A Joke!

"The Canadian immigration site crashed. That's not a joke, it actually crashed," wrote one Twitter user.

"Sounds like a joke, but the Canadian Immigration site - http://cic.gc.ca/english  is down due to overloading server issues," confirmed another.

We're Serious!

During the lead up to the election, many Americans began joking online that they would be seeking entry in to the land of their northern neighbor if Trump moved in to the White House, but everyone just figured that it was a joke!

The fact that the site crashed and remains intermittent, proves that they were 100% serious.

North Or South?

North Or South?

Interestingly, there are other options for Americans who want out. As reported by Business Insider, the governments of, not only Canada, but also Ireland and New Zealand, have put out the call to US residents to relocate if they aren't happy.

As it turns out, becoming a Canadian citizen is a bit tougher than many Americans may think. So, if you can't get up north, perhaps try Ireland or Australia's next-door neighbor in the south!
