The figures don't include Americans who have moved to the country in the hope of becoming permanent residents, or those who already live there.People don't seem to be as scared of Trump as they were of Obama. What does that say about the Obama years?
However, the statistics do suggest that, overall, the numbers of Americans trying to become Canadian are trending down.
From 2007-2014, the yearly average of Americans applying for Canadian citizenship was 5,712; in 2015 and 2016 the country had 3,168 and 3,623 applicants, respectively.
Canada's immigration website did crash around the time of the 2016 election, but that may not be because of horrified Americans looking to flee north.
