Canada Immigration Website Crashes as Trump's Victory Looks Imminent

The Government of Canada's immigration website has crashed down on Tuesday night as Donald Trump took the lead in several major states and his prospects for winning the US presidency turned markedly higher.

The official website for 'Citizenship and Immigration Canada' has apparently stopped working as large number of people decided to leave US with Trump posting big gains in key battleground states.

Canada's website usually offer ways of applying either to live in or to become a citizen of the country. But all those people who are trying to access the websites are able to see the post of "500 - Internal server error" message.

Data from Google Trends also suggested searches for “move to Canada” spiked significantly during the night as Trump victories unfolded in key battle states such as Florida and Ohio.

In the recent months, Canada has been active in taking in refugees from a range of countries. Donald Trump looks all but assured to be the new president of the United States, leading to huge anxiety among his opponents.
