If you are civilian, you have to pass a controlled goods assessment, which is not in itself a security clearance. You have to provide a Enhanced Police Record, detailing everything within the past 10 years I believe, and solid financial records, Then a company person who has been vetted by the government can approve you under the Controlled Goods Act. This will allow for the use and also for transporting the goggles.
You could consider taking the Aerocourse.
But you would have to travel to Calgary.
I found their IFR course very helpful and planning to do ATPL soon.
