Your results suggest inactive carrier status which is a very stable status.  Whether you can work in Canada really depends on their laws/prejudices/ignorances on Hep B.

Canada has socialized medicine so they are reluctant to admit new residents that are definitely going to require regular and expensive testing and possibly treatment.

I don't know what the law is in Canada.  I know their borders are not as open as the US. Good luck.
