Do Canadian Permanent Residents Require US Visitor Visas to Cross into the US?

If you are a Canadian Permanent resident and not a Canadian citizen, you may require a visa to enter the USA depending on what country you are from. For instance, if you are a Canadian PR from India, you will need to apply for a US Visitor Visa whereas if you are from, say, the UK, you will not. Some countries are subject to the US Visa Waiver Program. If you are from one of these countries, you will not require a US Visitor Visa to enter the US.
