Permanent Residency / PR
PR stands for Permanent Residency and refers to the resident status of a person which is usually permanent. Hence the name.
A permanent resident is not a citizen.
Anyone who holds the PR for any country will be the citizen of the country that he holds the passport of. Both cannot be the same.
For Indians looking to migrate to other countries, Canada is a top destination. The Permanent Residency (PR) option is the most popular way for Indians to migrate to Canada. Out of the record 341,000 immigrants who arrived in Canada in 2019, 25 percent of them belonged to India.
Canada welcomed more than 128,400 immigrants between January and August in 2020 and Indians led the way in getting the highest number of PR visa.
