The Canadian immigration site crashed down on Wednesday after Donald Trump was seen taking a lead over Hillary Clinton in the final stages of the US Presidential elections 2016. Cannada’s official website for the ‘Citizenship and Immigration Canada’ stopped working, reportedly due to a huge traffic on it. Though the exact number is yet to be revealed, it can be assumed that quite a large number of people must be looking to abandon America.
The website normally offers ways to apply to live in the country or take the Canadian citizenship. What has happened following Trump’s lead in the polls is that the people trying to reach the website are only being able to see a long loading page with no access to the website. In order to move into Canada, one must apply for a permanent residency in the country. There are quite a few ways to do so, mostly it requires people to work or live with their family in the country.
Meanwhile, the Republican candidate, Donald Trump looks almost assured to be the next President of the United states, making him the Commander-in-Chief of the World’s largest armed forces, among other things. Canada has been quite active and warm in accepting refugees from a great range of countries in recent months, most prominently from countries that come in a conflict zone. The Canadian government had earlier started a campaign to welcome Syrian refugees fleeing from the war in their country.
