Welcome to Canada (when you get here). What part of Canada will you be moving to?
Canadian drivers are not as aware of motorcycles as they are in other parts of the world. Mainly because they aren't as plentiful. Because of our winters, people don't have motorcycles as their primary mode of transportation.
I live in Toronto and find that I can use the bike from April to November (sometimes there is a day or two in December that I can ride).
As for laws, Canada required helmets and recommends full gear (pretty good advice). Unfortunately, the road rules do not allow lane splitting or filtering at lights. I'm not sure what your license would transfer over to... probably a full M. Our Limited Speed Motorcycle (LSM) license is for bikes/scooters which cannot go faster than 70kph (something with 47 hp should be able to do 200kph).
