Hi
We're looking at the same kinda thing and there are number of things for consideration.
Key thing seems to be where you want to go to in Canada, if you can go somewhere that has plumbing on the list of vocation which they are short of in that province, then hey presto.
As I understand it, Canadians prefer to see you face to face before offering jobs, (and your CV needs to be changed to Canadian format, see Wiki guide at top of page) and a reccy is preferred to meet a few people for them to get an LMO in place and offer a job, then you can either apply for a TWP to get out there ASAP, or you can apply for PR with a job offer.

Hope this helps, this is just my understanding of it and am sure others will add in some super-useful comments to help you along your way.
Colette ;o)
