Most of the advice here is bang on. Alberta and British Columbia are booming and there's lots of jobs to be had, especially skilled trades are in huge demand. Lots of construction jobs too, but not much of a future in those since the housing boom will cease eventually.
Jack, you mention not having a trade ticket. This may hold you back temporarily. Since the cost of living is ridiculously high and apartment vacancy rates are very low moving to the Western provinces may not be the best idea.
You don't want to immigrate just to work 2 McJobs just to survive. Think strategically.
If you're young and willing to train or apprentice moving to Ontario, Nova Scotia or New Brunswick may be a better option. Since the cost of living there is lower and the vacancy rates are higher it will be cheaper to live and go to a trade school. Either way all the best and God bless.
Energetic and hard working people, Canada welcomes you.
