It's been a running joke, or maybe a serious statement, from many Americans in this divisive election race: "If my candidate doesn't win, I'm moving to Canada."
Well, as the results are called, it looks like a lot of Americans really are looking for a way out as the Canadian immigration website went down in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
Searches for the word 'emigrate' in the US have also exploded, with Google Trends showing a sharp increase.
So was it people desperately seeking a way out?
Or do they just like the culture?
The whole thing has got some people a little offended.
Who says Canada will have you anyway?
