Please do your research. Go to cic.gc.ca for immigration-related questions.

I understand that if you have enougth education level, english level (not a problem for you) and suficient work experience, than you can apply for Express Entry. Take a look at cic.gc.ca


You can go the study path. Make a 2yrs College, you will have a part-time work permit while studying and a 3 years full-time work permit (called Post Graduation Work Permit) afther graduating. Than you may apply for your Permanent Residence. That`s what I`m planning to do.

It's a simple question.
Non Canadian Instructors need to know that it will take 15 hours ground and 15 hours air time (or more) before they can do a class 4 Instructor ride. Getting a job right now is relatively easy and all Canadian employers need is a labour market assessment
And advertise the job for 3 months,

You can scroll thru Pilots / Instructors wanted and spot the telltale adverts written for this purpose.

That will give you a list of those employers.

Once with a Class 4 flight schools report months of delay by TC before granting class 3 upgrades after 3 first solos and 3 licence reccomends.

TC management also seek to indirectly and improperly deny Class 3 upgrades to instructors with foreign instructing experience and schools should triple check all such paperwork to minimize expected delays that should not be happening.

It's a lot easier for foreigners to get any other flying job than instructing but it can be done providing you very clearly understand the requirements which become simple enough once you have seen it done once.

The problem is getting it right the first time as you may not get a second kick at the can.

Quebec 4.9 percent (near full employment)

Quebec 4.9 percent (near full employment)
Ontario 5.5 percent.
Manitoba 5.7 percent.
Saskatchewan 6.4 percent.
Alberta 6.9 percent. (around 5.7 in December)
British Columbia 4.6 percent. (near full employment)
The Territories? (Yukon, Northwest and Nunavut) Population too small to be statistically significant. Who cares anywayze?

Oh, if you think Canada has universal and uniform "free" health care available to all Canadians, it kinda sorta does. Public health care in Canada is administered provincially. Yes, each province (and territories) have varying levels of health care. Aboriginal (native) Canadians, including Metis, (half-breed, one-third breed, one-quarter breed), have a different level of health care than non-aboriginal Canadians. Refugees are also given preferential health care above levels not available to most other Canadians. Citizens below a certain income level and those on social assistance, (welfare), also receive a different level of health care than other Canadians. Presently, Canada's federal health care programme does NOT include pharmaceuticals (changes are coming), dental nor optometry. Your wait times for scans and non-emergency surgery may be weeks, some times months if not 18 months. Some Canadians go to the U.S.A. and even Mexico to expedite the caring of specific health care issues, such as hip joint replacement surgery. Vaccinations of some contagious diseases are NOT mandatory in Canada, so Whooping Cough (pertussis) outbreaks are common. Just saying.
Quebec 4.9 % ??? Of course when most are employed by the government just to produce stats like this..

Provincial unemployment rates have nothing to do with the question asked.

We can expect to see a continuation of foreigners getting visas to become Canadian Flight Instructors and work in Canada.

What needs to be understood is that Canada is dam near an open door when it comes to Immigration, be it walking across at an unofficial crossing because they are about to be deported from the USA or, pay a fee in a third world country to get a guaranteed job at a Tim Hortons or McDonalds. Those numbers are staggering.
What is disturbing is that many of the illegals entering Canada are squeezed out of the USA at a cost that should be billed to cadet spur bones.
