Being born and raised here, I've never applied to immigrate.
The Government of Canada has a pretty good Immigration web site:

From here there are links to forms and an FAQ.

As for jobs, it depends where you want to live. Toronto is booming, but I
think here (Victoria) is a nicer place to live.
(Yes Torontonians, having moved three years ago, I no longer believe that
your fair city is the center of the universe.)

Besides the excellent advice to check the paper Globe, the Globe also
maintains a career database, which has many ads (most of them in TO).:

Finally, check the job banks of local STC chapters.
Word of warning, many Canadians complain that relocation assistance is
pretty rare, so you'll have to wanna move bad.

Hope this helps,
