A Complete Guide on How to Apply for Canada PR from the USA
There are many possibilities for applicants looking to apply for Canada PR from the USA, as US President Donald Trump proceeds to push his anti-immigration plan during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Canada has itself been made to restrict immigration during the pandemic COVID-19, but the indications are that as soon as it is reasonably and economically viable to do so, the constant stream of the latest permanent residents will return.

In a plan of immigration levels that released just before the pandemic took a grip in Canada, the government declared its plan to welcome higher than 1.1 million new permanent residents within now and 2022. While the COVID-19 recovery looks possible to affect these numbers, there will continue many possibilities to immigrate to Canada soon.
