From January to October 2016, there was over 30,000 job hunts, compared to that of last year which was 19,600.

But in terms of the most wanted places for Job seekers, Ontario is taking the lead with over 7,500 American job seekers, followed by Toronto with 3,000 people.
Alberta, B.C, Quebec and New Brunswick followed the lead.

However, Toronto had the largest job publications with 39,300 job openings, followed by Montreal with 24,400 openings.

Over 2,000 Americans are seeking for jobs in Engineering such as civil, mechanical, and chemical or software engineers.

Information and technology is the second most wanted job with over 1,200 people seeking for jobs in this field of work in particular, Java developers, net developers, web developers and network administrators.

This was followed by those looking for financial jobs like accountants, clerks or bankers.

Notwithstanding the fact that most American rushing to Canada if Trump wins the White House are job seekers, some celebrities have also joined the list of those feeling the country.

During an interview on Monday, “Breaking Bad” actor Bryan Cranston declared that he will move to another region if Trump was elected president and he is not the only star making this decision. Celebrities such as Lena Dunham, Whoopi Goldberg and Barbra Streisand also have plans to move if Trump wins.
