Hello Friends,

I am asking for help for one of my friend.

Age 30

Masters in Geology

Work Experience: 5-6 years in his field (Geology)

Current resident: India

IELTS 6 to 6.5 bands

He's thinking to apply for Canadian PR.

As the rule changes every now and then, he's not sure if he's eligible to go there with his current status

He doesn't want to go for student visa..

What would be the safest and quickest way to go to Canada with PR? No region restriction from his side, he can go anywhere in Canada.

Please help
