I know many people who are here in USA on H1b and they have either started their green card process or want to do it in the near future. But most of them have applied for Canadian PR or already got one. Q. What is the advantage of getting Canadian PR when you don’t want to live in Canada? How long your Canadian PR is valid if you are living in USA? Do you have to visit each year? Does any one know how long it is taking these days to get Canadian landing papers?
