I d ont think you may convert a JAA to a Canadian (ATPL)
You will have to write the Atpl exams and do a flight test
In fact it is the same for a Canadian to convert to a JAA
Only the FAA can convert to a Canadian and vice-versa
But you may do some search with Google and maybe contact them directly

Flight Instructor Ratings will not convert, but if you hold an instructor rating from a contracting state - not sure if SA counts - some of the ground school hour requirement may be waived. Keep in mind you still will need to convert your license to a TC CPL or ATPL to have a license on which to attach the rating.

More info here (see section 7 for Credits for Foreign Applicants):

Thumbs up Instructors Rating

Thank you surveytheworld.

SA comes under the ICAO contracting state, that I am sure.
