US H1B, Indian National and Canada work Visa.

Asked by: 1450 views Canadian Immigration, USA Immigration

I have a question . I have given the case below.

Scenario 1:
H1B holder, has a total of 1.9 yrs left to complete 6 yrs.
Gets a Canadian work permit and a position to move there immediately , can he apply for a Canadian PR, if so how soon??
Can he still Keep his H1B while he does that?

Scenario 2:
His H1B employer sends him on a project to Canada with a Work permit.
The employer wants to initiate a GC here in the US while he is on a project there in Canada with a work permit is that possible?
Can the employer not process a GC here and will process a PR there or is both Canadian PR and US GC possible while the employee is in Canada on projects??

Scenario 3:
H1B Employee is here in US , GC initiated- can he apply for a Canadian PR being here in the US , Both GC and PR being processed parallel?
GC initiated, applying for work permit in Canada and working there temporarily, will this hamper GC process?
