It is not what you believe what counts. The job must be specifically in one of those 7 occupations, clearly identified duties in job offer must match duties in NOC description for particular occupation, salary must be within required range and you must have required education and experience credentials, all well documented.

As for your wife - Canada doesn't have enough residencies available for graduates from Canadian medical schools, thus it may be tough to get one for your wife here. As for the recognition - you start your search here:

and ask relevant authorities directly.

It seems fairly new, not sure why it’s not yet on the AINP front page. Maybe they are trying to keep it a secret. I found it via a blog (sorry don’t remember where).

Now only if they do a similar program for those on the UK work permit, I will get to Alberta in a heartbeat.

Thanks a lot for all of your responses and they have been really helpful in my research to find the possibility of earning a Canadian work permit, while having an H1. All in all, it seems a quite challenging effort to obtain a work permit from H1.

However, I have one more question regarding another possibility of migrating to Canada. Right now, I have filed for Green Card in the USA. It's still in Labor stage (1st stage). I would like to know, what are the issues that may arise, if I file for Canadian PR as well at the same time. Assuming the current situation, I believe I should be able to get the Canadian PR in a year period. However, GC process would take longer than that. Assuming I get my Canadian PR stamped before I receive the GC, will there be any problems, which I have to face from US immigrations in obtaining my GC.

In other words, are there any legal restrictions from either of the countries to obtain GC and PR at the same time?
Appreciate all your support.

Best regards
Mint

First make up your mind where you want to live, Canada or US. Then stick to one country.

I dont know the answer to your question, but there is a post on trackitt (hope its ok to provide link to it here), where the person's I485 was revoked when coming back to the US after landing in Canada.

http://www.trackitt.com/discussion-f...557139/page/1/

But there are other many posts where people land in Canada and return back to the US without any problems. So I dont know if its a legal requirement or not.

Thanks Ray. That forum was really helpful. It seems there is no hard and fast rule mentioning that you are not supposed to have two PRs from two countries. However, there could be a lot of negative repercussions in doing so too.

Hey Andrew, your comments were also really helpful in understanding the matters related to Canadian WP and PR.

Thanks a lot for all of the ppl who contributed with different opinions. These really helped me a lot and appreciate your help.

Best regards
