Immigration and Visas
If the only way you can come to Canada is with a job offer and a work permit, the easiest way to come to Canada is to get a visitor visa, if you need one, and to look for a job while you're here.
You cannot work in Canada using your visitor visa. But you can communicate with potential employers about future work.
Rather you should plan an actual holiday to Canada to see this beautiful country and, while here, see if you can make a few connections.
If you, or your parents can afford it, there is no better way to come to Canada than through studying at a Canadian university or college.
Canada offers numerous programs and a few Canadian universities are considered among the best in the world. Colleges, which offer more practical education, are another option.
The best part: the Canadian provinces offer permanent residence streams for graduates of post-secondary institutions.
But make sure when you are choosing your university you research the Provincial Nominee Program for your university's province, to see what it takes to get permanent residence.
It usually takes a job offer after graduation and a commitment to remain in the province at the very least.
The easiest career-specific route into Canada for anyone who isn't a "skilled worker;" it's the live-in caregiver program.
With only high school education, a job offer, and either six-months training or one year of caregiver experience, you could get a work permit.
There are numerous agencies that specialize in matching employers with potential foreign caregivers so it is much easier to find an employer than it is for other jobs.
WORK PERMIT WITH JOB OFFER
If you are semi-skilled or "skilled" (university educated) for most people the simplest way to come to Canada is to get a work permit.
You have to convince a Canadian employer to give you a job over a Canadian citizen or permanent resident.
Your employer has to convince Human Resources and Development Canada that they must hire a foreign worker as no Canadian can do that job (a Labour Market Opinion). So what seems like an easy process is made complicated.
If you are a national of one of these countries and you work for a company that either has a Canadian operation or has a contract with a Canadian company, you may be able to work in Canada without a Labour Market Opinion.
These agreements allow for you to work for your company, or their subsidiary, branch, affiliate, or parent company, in Canada in what is called an intra-company transfer.

Immigration and Visas
Get a (skilled) job
To make it easier, they might easily grant work permits to those who have a job offer/contract that guarantees a certain salary. For instance, Denmark offers work permits to those making over $66,000 per year, Ireland offers work permits for those making over $36,000 per year.
If you qualify, you get a resident and work permit for the duration of the contract (up to 2-3 years) which can be renewed later.
If you have certain higher education (Masters, PhD) in a highly sought out profession, that can greatly expedite your visa application. For instance, Denmark has a "Positive List" program which lists in-demand jobs.
You have to be able to demonstrate that you’re making enough to cover your own expenses, and that you have medical insurance so that you’re don’t start sucking off the resources of the host country’s generous social system (free healthcare, etc).
You can demonstrate having good amount in your bank account, as well.
Study in the country
If you choose to apply to a university or graduate school, you also get a residence permit for the duration of your studies.
Marry a citizen
Marrying the country’s citizen is one of the fastest ways to obtain the right to stay in the country.
After certain number of years of living legally under a temporary resident work, you can apply for a permanent resident permit (in USA, it’s called a Green Card), which is a right to reside/work in the country forever.
After being a permanent resident for several years, you can finally apply for naturalization (citizenship), and obtain that coveted second passport.
If you’re a US citizen/resident, you need to pay tax on your worldwide income. That means you’ll have to report your income regardless if you make it from US sources, and regardless if you’re living in the US.
If you’re not living in US, you may not need to pay tax on the first $95,000 (of your income, but you still need to pay self-employment taxes (13-15%).
Straight To Citizenship
If you’re a descendent (up to grandfather, I believe) of someone who is/was a citizen of certain countries like UK, Ireland, Italy or Poland, you maybe able to apply for citizenship or residency based on family ties.
