Many thanks in advance!
Firstly, unless youíve got very special skills urgently needed in Canada, the chances of acquiring employment from offshore are very limited to none.
Unfortunately you didnít disclose your age. If under 30 you may qualify for an IEC Visa. This would get you into Canada with the strong possibility, after one year of Canadian experience, to apply for Permanent Residence status.
