Before the 2016 presidential election several celebrities vowed to leave the country if Donald Trump won. He has been our president for three years now. Yet they remained in the United States. Canada was the most popular place for celebrities to relocate to. If President Trump wins reelection in 2020 will these celebrities finally move to Canada?
The election is seventeen months away and we don’t know who the Democrat nominee is going to be. It may be too early to tell but things are looking good for President Trump. According to Fox News, A USA Today Suffolk University survey showed 49 percent of Americans approving of the job Trump’s doing as president with 48 percent giving him a thumbs down. Based on his job approval rate and the fact that his campaign raised $24.8 million in the 24 hours surrounding the President’s campaign kick-off we are predicting that he will win in 2020. Maybe the elites in Hollywood will move to Canada this time.
Celebrities that Said they Would Move to Canada if Donald Trump Became President
1. Lena Dunham
“I know a lot of people have been threatening to do this, but I really will,” Girls’ Lena Dunham told a New York audience in 2016. “I know a lovely place in Vancouver and I can get my work done from there.”
2. Chloe Sevigny
In 2016 she posted on Instagram that she was planning on moving to Nova Scotia if Donald Trump became president.
The young actress said she had her ticket already and was prepared to “move to Canada with my entire family” if any Republican candidate became president.
4. Neve Campbell
During the 2016 election, actress Neve Campbell – who was born and raised in southern Ontario – said she found the thought of a Trump presidency terrifying. When asked by the Huffington Post what she would do if he won, she stated “Move back to Canada.”
5. Barbra Streisand
Barbra Streisand said on Australia’s “60 Minutes” of a possible Trump victory in 2016 “I’m either coming to your country — if you’ll let me in — or Canada.” During the 2018 midterm elections she made that threat again if the Republicans kept control of Congress.
6. Bryan Cranston
Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston said he will leave the U.S. and move to Canada if Donald Trump became president in 2016.
“Absolutely. I would definitely move. It’s not real to me that that would happen. I hope to God it won’t,” Cranston told The Bestseller Experiment podcast when asked if he would take an extended holiday to Vancouver if the Republican candidate prevails over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
None of these celebrities kept their promise. They probably learned the hard truth that moving to Canada is not easy.
What You will Need to Know Before Moving to Canada
Canadian immigration policies are strict.
In Canada there are only four categories of immigrants: family-class (closely related persons of Canadian residents living in Canada), economic immigrants (skilled workers and business people), refugees (people who are escaping persecution, torture or cruel and unusual punishment), and the humanitarian and other category (people accepted as immigrants for humanitarian or compassionate reasons). Most of the celebrities that were planning on moving to Canada do not fall under any of those categories.
If you are planning on building a home you need to follow Canadian building codes.
Canada has a colder climate than the United States. The building codes are written with that in mind. For example, when you are installing plumbing in your new home you need to protect pipes from freezing today.
It might be easier to just purchase a home in Canada instead of building a new one. Click here now to search for properties for sale.
Maybe these celebrities will be better prepared to move to Canada in 2020 when Trump is reelected for a second term. Most Americans could care less if they move or stay.
