The threat to move to Canada surfaces among Americans every four years that President Obama and Prime Minister Trudeau joked about it during Justin Trudeau’s state visit to the United States.
In truth, there have been people who followed through on their threat. Approximately 100,000 American Loyalists traveled north because of the American Revolution. Black Americans headed to Canada to flee slavery. 300,000 American pioneers settled in the Canadian prairies in the early 20th century. And there are varying estimates as to how many Americans settled in Canada during the Vietnam War as draft dodgers and war resisters. The number is somewhere between 50,000 to 240,000. That means the last great exodus to the North Country took place between 1955 and 1975.
