As the results of the U.S. presidential election pour in, Citizenship and Immigration Canada’s website appeared to be inaccessible to some users.
Clicking on the site around 11 p.m. ET resulted in an error that stated “there is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed.”
Two hours later, it still wasn’t working. CIC has not yet commented on the apparent outage
Twitter users have suggested it’s proof Americans are flooding the site with requests because they’re not happy about the results and considering moving north.
I was gonna write this as a joke but found out it was real. "The Canada Citizenship and Immigration site crashed around 8 PM" #electionnight— Ben Schwartz (@rejectedjokes) November 9, 2016

Where we stand right now: DOW futures are down 750. The dollar is plummeting. And Canada’s immigration website just crashed.— Nick Bilton (@nickbilton) November 9, 2016
