H1B 221g experiences Canadian visitor
Hi All
Any H1B or F1 221 g (pink slip specifically) experiences in any of the Canadian consulates? How are the administrative processing timelines recently? Any preferred consulate for faster processing? I would truly appreciate some feedback and advice for my situation.

This would be my 3rd H1B stamping and first time in Canada. I always receive 221g for H1B due to my PhD and/or my degree. Pre covid used to take 3-4 weeks in India which wasn't a problem. However, during covid in 2020 it took 10 months and I was stuck in India for the entire year. So, now I am looking into traveling to Toronto/Ottawa ( I am in Detroit so easier) to get stamping, travel back to US and then travel to India next year. I can potentially stay in Canada and work from there for 1-2 months without issue. Still better than being stuck in India and work during god-awful hours overnight. Planning to travel May 2023 so really need to get started soon. Happy to answer any general 221g questions that you guys may have. Thanks!
