To answer your question is it worth it? it was very much worth for me and my family. Although we did move back to UK and back to Canada again so took quite a while to realise what I really wanted!!!
I think the best way for you to start is to get very clear in your motivations for emigrating. Think about what kind of life you want for you and your family. What is important to you all, and why having it will make life better. Don't think in terms of Canada at all just what you really want.... (I have a great little exercise you can use to help with this if you PM I'll email it to you)
Once you have this list, lots of things will begin to make sense. Because you are clear, you will begin to find places that suit your needs, you will realise if the stress, time and effort are worth what you will gain, and you will have the reasons you need to explain your decision to family. You will also gain the motivation to research how you are going to achieve it.
Best Wishes Louise
