US H-1B holder applying for Canadian PR

Asked over 1 year ago - San Mateo, CA

I am currently employed on H1b visa with an employer in USA. I am seeking to apply for PR canada and wondering if that visa/program is still open ?

From what I recall , if someone meets the eligigbilty criteria(federal skilled workers) set forth by canada immigration deptt it is fairly easy to obtain PR.

P.S: I am an indian citizen

Please advise.
