Brazilian pilot working in Canada

Hi guys i have a few questions about Cananda, I wish someone could help me. Im a flight instructor currently working in Brazil with about 350 hrs. My dream is to fly bush and float planes. Since in Brazil there arent almost any float planes and I really like to ski and snowboard, Canada seems a great country to live. I dont really care about a big wage, just want to make enough to make a simple life and fly. Ive been searching the internet about immigrating to Canada to work as a pilot, but it all seems very confunsing. How hard shoud it be to convert my licenses? Ok, then after my license is finnaly converted, how about getting a jog, do I need to be a canadian cittizen to get a job? What about that Permanent Card? Ive been reading that people wait for years for that document. Most jobs that I found on the internet ask something like this "Must be legally entitled to live and work in Canada." What does that really mean? Would a temporary working visa be good for that whille I wait for the final pappers? I hope someone could help me with those quetions.
Thanks a lot for yout attention

Changing your license over will be the easy part. The difficult part will be getting working status in Canada. As there are already a lot of pilots in Canada without jobs it's hard to immigrate here as a pilot. The easiest way to do immigrate is if you are an engineer, doctor, nurse etc... Then after about 2 years and you have your landed immigrant status change back to flying.
