Hi Guys,

I am US Green Card Holder. Due to some reason, my family is keen to relocate to Cananda.

Does being a US Green Card Holder have any edge ?

Someone suggested me that being a US Green Card Holder, its better to find work in Canada & once I have a job, apply for Canadian PR. While some suggests that apply PR while I am in US.

Would be a great help if anyone can help me out here.

Thank you.

It's like trading in a ferrari for a ford. Anyways no there is no additional preference given to us gc holders.

No edge for Green Card holders. Same application process as for anyone else.

Unlikely you will be successful in finding a job before you are a PR. Focus on getting PR first.
