The answer is Yes whether you are living outside Canada or in Canada. There are several ways for you to apply for a Canadian PR without a job offer. I will introduce a federal program, provincial programs and family union program for you to immigrate to Canada possibly without a job offer.
Generally, you will need a full-time employment in Canada in order to apply for a PR. In some cases, candidates can apply for PR without a job offer. Those who can obtain PR without a job offer is younger age, has excellent English and/or French skills and have good qualifications in term of Canadian immigration point of view.

Federal Skilled Worker -You can apply for permanent residence if you are considered a “Skilled Worker”. You must pass a point system that shows the government whether you will be successful once you immigrate to Canada. You need minimum 67 points for this program.
Federal Skilled Trade program – The Federal Skilled Trades Program is for people who want to become permanent residents, based on being qualified in a Skilled Trade. Without a job offer, you will need to arrange your certificate of qualification in that skilled trade issued by a Canadian provincial.
Besides meeting the qualification, you will need to show your intention/connection to reside the province.
