Pros and Cons for Permanent Residency in Canada

Posted on April 10, 2009. Filed under: General, H1B | Tags: , , |

Here are some of the Advantages and disadvantages from my point of view for the Permanent Residency in Cananda:


  1. Between 8 -10 months you can get Canadian PR and can work anywhere in Canada for anyone, no VISA hassles.
  2. You can come back to United States on your existing Visa (H1B/L1/B1/F1) with out any hassles.
  3. Additional career opportunities to work both in Canada (on PR)and in United States (on H1B )
  4. You can work in Canada and United States seamlessly.
  5. Concurrently process your Green Card either on your H1B Visa (those who don’t want to change their status, can always come back on H1B )
  6. You can go to many countries (Europe, Australia, Kiwi land) with out any Tourist Visas – another privilege being Permanent Resident of Canada.
  7. If you can afford to stay for 3 years in Canada for some employer you are eligible to get your Canadian Citizenship.
  8. Once you become Canadian Citizen you are free to be a citizen of United States – Another privilege for Canadian Citizens.
  9. There are lots more advantages that I don’t know.


1. You can’t use Canadian Permanent Resident Card in United States. You still have to work /study on your existing Visa.

2. You still have to apply for your GC in United States.

3. You should have a minimum of one year work experience in United States under H1B visa category to qualify for this program.

4. You will need to stay 3 years in Canada after you get your PR to get your Canadian Citizenship.

Note: There is a separate fee for Citizenship application. But this can be paid after 3 years of stay in Canada while filing for Citizenship.

Do you still need to take IELTS to apply H1B base PR?

Thanks & Regards,

If you are applying through AINP program (H1B base) you don’t need IELTS, unless they specifically ask for it during the later stages of the process. But to process Canadian PR in the regular way, you need IELTS test to get more points towards you PR points.
