I know Canada companies have different comporate culture. They usually ask some Canadian experiences. Even in the United States, people don't want to hire people with no USA experiences. Those agents often modify the candidate's resumes and wrap up the candidates with some USA experiences.
In Canada, if you are honest and claim no Canadian experiences, you still have some opportunites. The issue is how to convince the people that you are really good. I am Chinese. My understanding is that most Chinese countrymen fail in the IT job interviews because of their lack of commanding of English language. See the next paragraph.
Recently, I met a MS holder in CS in the court. He was laid off one month after he was hired. His English is so poor that he could understand that the judge asked him to come back on another day. Yesterday, I heard a story about another IT guy. He could not understand the word "suite 303"
as the agent told him on the phone the address of the client company. As a result, he missed an opportunity. Both IT guys hold a MS degree in CS, so what?
I cannot emphasize too much how important English is to us.
