Take the advantage of situation.Big IT shops here precisely look for the people like you (who have Green Card/citizenship of USA/Canada) and who won't find much problem shifting their base to India for the time being.
Salary may not be comparable but with powerful currency you can invest in apartment/land.The rates of land/apartment are skyrocketing and only those who hold foreign currency(US$/Euro) are able to afford it.
You can later sell it while going back to Canada.It may not be as easy as it appears but non residential Indians staying in US/Canada are doing it.

Myth #2: Let me join Company A. If I don't like it, I will leave it and find a better job elsewhere.



This myth is true it is the fact part I have trouble with. Have you ever heard that people need to be flexible or roll with the punches. That's no really what the industry wants. The industry wants you to stay until they are through with you. True, they don't want to compete for you on price. They want you to love them.
