Hello I am a journeyman in America and I was wondering is it the same as an journey person in Canada? If yes what’s the process to work and transfer to Canada.

Welcome
Two things. You posted this in apprentice section and you say journeyman, and it should also have been asked in Canadian section.
@99cents or @Kevin can move it and answer.
Also search this topic at the top, it has been answered many times.

Contact your province's trades authority for particulars on having previous experience/hours evaluated to be able to challenge exams.

Sorry to say but, the US has a very grabasstic licensing system.
The Canadians have their Red Seal program.
The basic qualifications for a US electrician is to be a divorced alcoholic.

I've wired on both sides of the border with permits and I have no idea how to answer your question.

Hey!
I resemble that remark.
At least I did until I met the second wife.
