Default PNP route or PR route

Is it better to apply via the Alberta PNP programme or to apply directly for PR?


I have a chance of employment in Edmonton,Alberta and will have a clearer picture in the spring time.Once and if I achieve a job offer what would the best advice be?

Should I apply for a temp work visa and then apply for PR whilst over in Canada?

Any advice is warmly recieved

I'm not sure about the PNP, looked pretty complicated to me so I chose FSW category and it took me a year through Buffalo.

I strongly recommend taking the temp work visa and applying from here, regardless which category. It can only improve your chances of acceptance and may be faster than doing it from the outside.

if you can obtain a work permit, then it does not really matter which route as long as you can make it at the end and obtain your PR status because you would be in Canada anyway, PNP route is supposed to be faster if everything goes smoothly but you will need to settle in that province.
good luck

No matter how complicated, do PNP. FSW from London is currently taking 41 months to complete.

Don't forget that it is essentially the company who makes the PNP application first of all. Once this is approved then you make the federal application. In theory this can all be done in 6-12 months. It took 4 months for a colleague from South America, but things have slowed since.

If the offer is HRSDC approved then you can come on a work permit then make the application from within Canada. This is what I am currently doing.
