If you are serious in trying to emigrate to Canada then apply as soon as you can but bear in mind that the more courses you can list the more "marketable" your application. The Government of Canada use a points system to determine who steps in upfront.

Bear in mind that there was a trade called Telecomunication electrician but that has all but dissappeared and data and coms fall under class 2 circiuts which do not require an electricians ticket so the pay is more than a first year electrician 50% of journeymans wages but it will not climb by much from your starting wage at around third year you will be at or over most data guys.
There is a need for data conection and especialy fibre splicing tickets are a very good thing to have even if you do want to go for the full journeymans ticket. Another good ticket for the electrical/data feild is the class 1 drivers ticket for bucket trucks and delivery trucks.
The best bet for actualy finding work is by showing up and dropping of resumes a lot of people wanted to work in offices and work the IT side so there is usualy a shortage of people wanting to get their hands dirty and there is no maximum age for starting apprentiships started mine at 26 and took 8 years to get my ticket. five years is the minimium time you have to serve or around 5000 hrs in the trade and four periods of college totaling 36 weeks. Most trades are around the same time table depending on the trade.
