Dating App Helps Americans Connect With Single Canadians


Americans looking to move to Canada now that Donald Trump clinched the presidency have a new social dating app that might help with the process.

Maple Match connects Americans and Canadians looking for romance with an added bonus: a chance for a PR card, Canada’s version of a green card.

Maple Match profiles offer an option to list citizenship status and which citizenship you might be interested in obtaining.

“Tens of thousands of you have told us that they want to use Maple Match for dating, so we look forward to building the best experience out there for meeting quality matches online,” the site says.

The app surveys users for their political preferences and asks what their ideal partner’s political leaning should be. Unlike other dating apps, there is no “swipe” option on Maple Match. The app picks a set number of potential partners based on user’s preferences.

Maple Match was actively tweeting throughout Election Day, reminding Americans of the possibility of obtaining Canadian citizenship. Meanwhile, Canada’s immigration website crashed as election results came in. Google trends also reported the highest spike in the “move to Canada” search since 2004.

Founder and CEO Joe Goldman told NBC that the iOS app officially launched on Saturday, Nov. 5. It has been an iOS beta app since May.

As of Wednesday morning, Maple Match was ranked the 61st social networking app in the Apple App Store.
