“Data from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) shows a significant spike in the number of work permits being granted to American residents. The number of people receiving Canadian work permits in the first eight months of the year soared 54 per cent over the same period in 2015.” – The Canadian Press

Data points directly to the hostile political climate in the US.
…plus you gotta admit, we have it pretty good up here.
