In the Canadian working world, you fall into two job types.
A property manager, working for a private company that manages large housing projects, of apartment towers, or townhouses, in a city or town. The municipal public authority housing is more diverse, with a mix of towers, row houses, and low rise blocks of flats.
The city employees are well paid, but getting hired may take a lot of work, to get the the layers of interviews and checks of your references from the UK. The private sector is more flexible and makes hiring decisions faster, in my experience.
The other job type is "By Law Enforcement Officer " which is only found in either a City, a Town or a Provincial government. It is a quasi-legal position, with limited powers. They are granted certain legal powers, to enforce either city or Provincial by laws, re property and municipal standards, ie garbage removal, weed control, animal control, building inspection, residential noise complaints and the like.
