Don’t know answer to 1) but pretty sure Canadian borders are still closed anyway and if it’s your first time stamping, I think it’s generally safer to do it in your home country so that in case any delays happen, you can be at home rather than stranded in mexico.

As far as I have heard, the H1B stamping dates are available starting March in India, unless you prove some emergency to come back and raise emergency request to the consulate. Dropbox facility as far as I have heard is available for the same visa class extensions not for new visa class. Better to get stamping from home country because that gives you a chance and priority to be considered for re-stamping at a later point in time. Canada borders are not yet open for people travelling from US. In these uncertain times, it is better to get it stamped from home country at appropriate time.

You cannot go for first time stamping to Canada. It will have to be home country. Also, why do u want to risk by travelling now? Oh boy, elections are around the corner and Trump can get wild at any time. If I am you, I will wait until January until things settle with Politics as well as Covid. Trying to go for stamping now will not be a smart move unless its an emergency. There are 100’s of people stuck in India without appointments and embassies are operating under limited capacity.

Agreed

Following this as well

Does anyone know whether it’s possible to request dates for drop box? I can’t get those either

I believe the EO was ruled out for the petitioners only?

If I have a Canadian PR can I go for first time H1B stamping (COS) in Canada?

I don't think the U.S consulates in Canada are open for visa interviews yet. When i checked two weeks back the appointments were all for emergency only
