+1, do your research, get to know what you want and most importantly THINK (not that I'm saying you don't do that). Stick around for long enough while displaying that you're a mature individual and interested in the sport and who knows, you might just be allowed to go watch/film a game, maybe even shoot some guns
P.S. welcome to Canada and I wish you the best of luck in getting settled.
