Yes indeed, Qualifications and Finances are significant factors in modern Immigration procedures these days (pretty much wherever you are heading). As a starting point, please look at this Eligibility questionnaire from the CIC website (Canada Immigration & Citizenship). Although you are focusing on Employment, this should provide some global requirements in the various routes you can pursue.
A good way to find out if BC/Canada is right for you is to try a working holiday? A number of my friends have emmigrated in this way. The only catch is you need to be under 30...
If you are under 30 you don't need any qualifications and the costs are reasonable and you can stay for up to 2 years. This gives you some time to try to find permanent employment and in this way you can try to get a sponsor to stay.

The working holdiay used to be offered through a company called BUNAC and this is how I lived in BC for a year but while I was out there the programme became a lot easier to do on your own. However, BUNAC do still offer a program and so if you wanted extra support you could look at them. I'd say its just as easier to go through the IEC programme though.
