Canadian immigration website crashes amid election results

The Canadian government's immigration website crashed early Wednesday morning.

And experts believe the United States election played a major role.

Business insider reports the site went down around 10:30 last night, and access has been spotty since.

Online searches regarding moving to Canada and becoming a Canadian citizen grew in recent months.

Particularly after Donald Trump won the republican presidential nomination.
