Note that relying on your teaching qualifications for your permanent residence (PR) application and being able to work as a teacher in Canada are two different issues.

Your degree will earn you points if you apply for PR as a skilled worker.

However, if you actually want to work as a teacher, you then will have to obtain certification in the province in which you settle. To find out how to do that do a Google search for CERTIFICATION + TEACHER + NAME OF DESTINATION PROVINCE.

Just as an example, I did a Google search for CERTIFICATION + TEACHER + ONTARIO, and I found the Become a Teacher page of the Ontario College of Teachers.

In Canada it's quite common for newly arrived teachers to have to accept part-time work as supply teachers before they can work their way up the ladder and become permanent, fulltime teachers.

You also should be aware that it's currently taking applicants something like 5 years to get into Canada via the skilled worker route.
