1)What should be the approximate time to get the green card?
It takes approx 6 months from date of filing for interview at local USCIS field office.
It takes as per prior question up to 90 days for them to get their work permit and permission to travel.
2) Can they go to canada and come back
The cannot depart the US until they get their advance parole document or they abandon their adjustment of status application and have to do consular processing. Re-entry is discretionary.
3) Canadaian citizen can stay 6 months without any problem, so if i apply from here can they stay here until decision is made?
Yes, I noted in my previous answer they were visa exempt status.
Absolutely, after the adjustment of status is filed they can remain in the US until a decision is made. They do not accrue any unlawful presence or out of status time.
