Find out where the demand is highest right now in Canada. For instance, is Georgian looking for guys? If so, find out if they will type rate you on the B-1900 and ask what this would entail. If they don't, ask if you had one, would it help? If they say yes, ask for advice on where to get one? It's a round about way of saying that you are willing to pay for your PPC. They just might be willing to offer you a job that allows you to pay back the type rating over a period of time. However, be very clear that you are not willing to work for free. Every month there should be a paycheque for the work you've done. Once you get your foot in the door and your first IFR job then usually it becomes easier to find the next flying job and then the next etc.
Or, better yet, don't pay for your PPC. There is more hiring going on now for low timers in Canada than there has been for years. Not a bad time to knock on doors...and shake some hands...and in Calgary, you're within a day's drive of a good number of operators. Send off CVs, phone if the company doesn't say not to, and show up to talk to the CP/Ops Mgr. From Calgary, you have many, many operators not all that far away - could easily hit a few in N Alberta and over to SK in a few days.
Many companies require a bond or promisory note, but others do not. And you should never have to pay for training to work for a company.
