Suggest that you start here.

Government of Canada - Immigration information

Just don't get your hopes up. If you do manage to get residency, you are not likely to be flying in any way shape or form at the present time, except as SLF.

Google is your friend my man: https://www.tc.gc.ca/en/services/avi...gn-pilots.html

That is the license conversion stuff.

Not to put too much of a point on it, but almost all operators in Canada have, are in the process of, or have plans to lay off pilots resulting from COVID-19, so your chances of obtaining gainful employment right now are nil as all those pilots will be called back into their jobs before you are offered an interview, never mind a job. The good news for you is that unless your wife holds Canadian citizenship, the process for you to get through all the visa applications and license conversions may take just enough time for things to begin to right themselves. My very dirty and not too accurate crystal ball says it's likely 18 months to two years before my airline will be thinking of hiring again, so that's a good timeline to shoot for. Not exactly urgent.
