Post-Election, More Interest in Canada's Universities

November 22, 2016

Canadian universities are seeing a surge of interest from Americans since the election, The Globe and Mail reported. The University of Toronto's admissions website typically receives 1,000 visits a day from computers based in the United States. The day after the election, the site received 10,000 American visits. McGill University is reporting a surge of applications from Americans. The number of Google searches for "college Canada" and "university Canada" was twice as high the day after the election than any day in the last five years. Those figures would include non-Americans, suggesting interest not just from the United States, but elsewhere.
