Hi jazzerako,

While your profession certainly allows you to be able to find work anywhere in the world (musicians are always valued by most civilizations), unfortunately it is of absolutely no help to you in terms of immigration. It would even be difficult for a world-famous pianist or violinist to obtain a Permanent Resident Visa based solely on their profession unless being sponsored heavily by a Philharmonic Orchestra of some multi-national company.

You should visit the Citizenship and Immigrations Canada website and see if you are qualified to obtain a PR Visa for Canada.

If you do obtain a visa and come to Canada you would most likely need to become a member of one of the various musician's unions. The Central Ontario Musicians Association (COMA) or one of the Canadian Locals of the American Federation of Musicians (AFM).

The entertainment industry in North America is very competitive and you would also need to have an agent to help you find work, arrange performances, etc.  Cheers,
