The United States 2016 Presidential Election has brought people to their last resort: Canada. Canada stands as a savior to American citizens that need a place to easily fit into. Canada has plenty of room for new citizens and takes people in with open arms. Canada is the second-largest country in the world, second to Russia. Most of Canada’s 35 million citizens live on the southern edges, near the United States. That allows easy access to the Northern borders of the United States.

In the United States past, it has been evident that moving to Canada solves many of Americans’ issues. During the Vietnam War, people dodged the draft by moving to Canada, receiving the title, “draft dodgers.” Some people dodged the draft to show a sense of protest or peace. Others dodged the draft to avoid being split from their families or possibly meeting their death in war. Next time you hear someone say, “I’m just going to move to Canada,” you may just want to take them seriously.

If you’re actually considering moving to Canada then you may want to consider these few steps. First, find an ideal location in Canada that suits your wants and needs. Visit the area so you know what to expect. Contact the Canadian Citizenship and Immigration Services to get your Canadian Visa. Start looking for possible job opportunities before moving to Canada. Create a life for yourself before you permanently move to Canada. Also, be aware that Canada’s taxes and prices are higher than the United States.

Canada has earned its reputation as the best alternative to the United States. Consider your dash for Canada before the election is over and the results do not satisfy you.
