Go to http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/index.asp and read about how to immigrate.
It depends on your skills and education what options you have.
If you or the husband have enough points to apply as a skilled worker, see http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/skilled/ass... you will have that option but it can take a long time to process depending on where you live, see http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/times/int...
If you or husband have education and skills to be considered a skilled worker even if you don´t have enough points, you can try to get a job offer and temporary work permit and become permanent later under a provincial nominee program, see http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/provincial/... or under the Canadian Experience Class, see http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/cec/apply-w... If one of you gets a temporary work permit, the other one can get an open work permit.
If you do not have education and skills to be considered a skilled worker, you can still immigrate under BC or AB provincial nominee programs, see http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/provincial/... BC and AB are the only provinces currently that offer the chance to become permanent through a low skilled job but you would both have to qualify. You would have to have experience doing some of the jobs they list and you would have to get a job offer for a job listed, in the province where it is listed and you could apply to become permanent with the help of your employer.
Another option would be to go on a student visa, take at least a 2 year course, get a post-grad work permit after you graduate and then qualify to apply to be permanent under a provincial nominee program, see http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/provincial/... or under the Canadian Experience Class, see http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/cec/apply-w... If one of you gets a student visa, the other can get an open work permit.
To determine if you can call yourself a skilled worker, go to http://www5.hrsdc.gc.ca/NOC-CNP/app/index.aspx and find your job. It will give you a 4 digit number for your job. If the number starts with 0 or if the 2nd digit of the number is 1, 2 or 3, then you are considered a skilled worker.
