There is no demand. Job market in Canada was always weaker then in USA. Maybe, before making decision of going there, you should talk first with some Canadian agents and see if they will get you some interviews.

There is jobs in Canada as well for java, j2ee, ejb. It's all depend on your skills, expreience, interview skills...and most important your confidenace. I am landed immigrant in canada after IT market sink in north america, but I was able to get perfect job.
Please if you don't get job means, discourge others to come here.. There is always job and place for you if you are inteligent and confident...

I think the demand for Java programmers is very high in India. You might want to try there.

It probably depends on which part of Canada your looking. On the job boards here, I see lots of java opportunities in Toronto and in the Toronto area.
I'm in Alberta, and if you know the right people and have just a little bit of a network, you can find the job you're looking for. Whether this qualifies as 'in demand' .....

I suppose it depends on your qualifications. I know a lot of people in Toronto here that have been on the bench for some time, or left the field entirely.

There's a decent demand for Java developers here, mostly in Toronto though. The problem is there is a glut of people who think they can be developers. I'd recomend starting some work on your own as a 'showcase' that potential employers can look at to see what you have to offer.

I've been doing programming since I was in high school in 1987. I have about four years experience of working as a programmer, including two and a half years as a Java programmer (servlet, jdbc, jsp, a little bit ejb). I'm planning to take SCJP exam soon.
How do you think is my chance to get a job there?

Ask on "tor.jobs" if anyone wants you with your java skills. I bet noone will respond. I'm not saying you have no chance, but this will give you some idea about demand for generic IT skills there. Your experience is not very competitive. Every university/college graduate can do java, servlets and whole bunch of other things. If you are social extrovertic type of person you will eventually get your chance, but it might take you some time to get there. In the meantime living expenses are very high if you are thinking about Toronto.

Those are not the only skills I have . I just didn't want to put my whole resume here.
