H1B or Canada PR?

As we know that H1B is a none- immigrant visa which allows temporary job of overseas citizens. Even though the H1-B visa is the most preferred choice among many people to relocate to the US for job prospects. It is totally dependent on sponsorship from the employer of an immigrant.

The process of applying for this visa always exceeds the allotted quota. So getting this visa, even after securing sponsorship possess an important challenge for those who seek to migrate to US to stay for longer period of time.   Though you could do the job in the US on this visa, your status would remain as a long-term visitor but not a permanent resident. To become a permanent resident you would go through a tough process and it might take many years for becoming a US Green Card Holder.  

On the other side, Canada has got the simple and straightforward process of immigration. You could apply to become a permanent resident of Canada through its famous express entry programs and other Canada immigration programs. If you got selected then you would become entitled to apply for Canadian Permanent Residency. Once you got approval for the visa, then you could migrate to Canada with the PR status. After staying for around 4-6 years in Canada as a permanent resident, you are allowed to apply for Canada citizenship.

But in the US case, you cannot guarantee how much time it takes to gain citizenship of that country.   Another important factor of migrating to Canada is the acceptance. In the US a negative wave against the immigrants is seen visible among their citizens.
