Overstay is an unknown quantity at this point
Default niche field

I have a question about migrating as a database administrator to Canada. My specialization is in a niche language called A+ which is used by almost all major banks. Oracle, Sybase etc. don't even come into play on my resume'. How should I go about testing the waters for immigrating into Canada?

Have a look at the Wiki (on blue bar at top of page) which will explain your visa options. As IT professionals are not on the list of occupations in demand, you'll probably need a job offer and LMO (Labour Market Opinion - your potential employer has to apply for this, and to get it they have to prove that they've advertised the job across Canada and been unable to find a Canadian willing, or able, to do the job). Once you've got a job offer and the LMO, you can then apply for a Temporary Work Permit.

That gives you a brief overview, but have a read of the Wiki for more info and good luck.
