Is it worth getting the Canadian PR as a back up if the greencard process doesn't work out?

In my personal opinion, yes, definitely!


Agree with this, but be careful, I applied for both GC and Canadian PR, I provided all the documentation and paid the Canadian PR fees. Then when I saw my GC is getting finalized and there is no way I could pack and leave for canada within next 1 year, I had to stop my Canadian PR processing and I could only get back a small part of the PR fees. It was so much effort and money wasted.
My point is, don’t get greedy and apply for everything, see if you can even use them.

Depends on if you are from India or China. If you are not they Canadian PR is not worth it!

Just applied for a family based green card (married to a US citizen). Does anyone have any insights into how long processing times might be right now through experience? Would love to know about either EAD, Advance Parole or total GC processing time.
