Default Uk bus driver wanting to get truck licence

Hi I am a bus driver in the UK and I'm looking to get a truck licence in canada .Does anyone know what school is best to get one ? Preferably in nova Scotia but it could be anywhere .Also when I get my licence would it be easy enough to get a job as I would be a new driver ? I am also looking at bus driving jobs temporary as I think I would enjoy truck driving more.Also what is the average salary you could earn ? I would like to stay in canada and not travel around America .

Are you a Canadian citizen or Permanent Resident of Canada ?
If not you need a LMIA/TWP but you also need experience driving Class1 to get the TWP.
Someone will be along to explain this bit a lot easier than I can.
