There are definitely jobs available in Canada for American technical
writers. The general situation, as described in Canadian press and trade
journals, is that a lot of college and university-trained writers,
programmers, etc. have fled south to the U.S. to find better-paying jobs,
creating a distinct employee gap for high tech firms to fill. There are a
number of government and industry headhunting programs in the Maritimes (New
Brunswick in particular) to recruit trained writers, and there is similar
pressure building in other provinces.

There are numerous job listings in the Careers section of the main national
newspaper, the Globe and Mail, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Job
fairs where writers can hand out their resumes to top companies are common
in Toronto, Ontario.

Good luck!
