Needing some input from Canadian developers

Hello all,
I am having a difficult time figuring out how to plan for getting a developer job in Western Canada. Currently I live in Victoria, BC. Most of the information I see online, and here, is related to getting a job in the US.
I was hoping to get some advice from any Canadian folks who have gone the self-taught route in Canada and how to go about figuring out a good roadmap for a Front-End developer role.
I’m mainly wanting to know if the landscape for Dev jobs in Canada is drastically different than the advice or methods and advice you see online on most US based sites.
