Americans looking to move to Canada, Montreal is open: Coderre

Denis Coderre Election Tweet

Now that Donald Trump is the President-elect, if US citizens want to come to Canada, Montreal is open.

As the race got closer and closer to its eventual outcome, Mayor Denis Coderre tweeted "Our newcomer integration office will be open after the American vote."

The threat of moving to Canada is nothing new, but appeared to become a popular theme for Americans, including some celebrities, as Donald Trump gained support a couple weeks prior to November 8.

Will we see a flood of new Canadians? Right now we don't know, but as the "President Trump" headlines became more and more frequent overnight Canada's Citizenship and Immigration website crashed, and was down for several hours.
