Permanant Residence Canada
 
We are currently going through the process of applying for Permanant Residence in Canada. After a long thought we are thinking it would be more benefical to us to actually go for a Parent/Grandparent Super Visa. Would it be easy to change direction at this last stage.

It depends on what your ultimate goal is. Both have Pro's and Con's but if the ultimate goal is to remain in Canada then PR is the better bet.

As a PR you have the right of entry into Canada and can move around and work if you wish to do so. You would also be covered for the Provincial Health coverage plans dependent on Province residing in.
Most have coverage (limited) to temporary residents i.e Super Visa visitor/work study permit holders.
Super Visa needs to be renewed every 2 years up to a maximum of 10 years. Additional medical coverage gets more expensive the older you get.
PR cards require renewing every 5 years if travelling outside of Canada.
PR allows you to apply for Citizenship if you really wanted it.

You can withdraw PR application at any stage.

It would be easy, but whether it's a good idea or not will depend on what you want. If you're sure you want to move permanently, then stick with the PR app, as a super visa is only temporary and won't give you the security of PR.

How have you applied for PR?

With dual residency UK/Canada, Can you access both NHS and Canada Health Care. Do you have to opt for one or the other?

You wouldn't be dual resident, you'll be resident for tax, healthcare etc, purposes in one country. The NHS allows emergency care for non residents, so if you lived in Canada and had an accident when visiting the UK you'd be ok to go to A&E. But most other services are residency based, so if you're no longer resident in the UK you'd be charged for them including any hospital stays/treatment.

What you can access in Canada will depend on the province, where would you be living?
