Can I get one driver's licence for all of Canada?

Each province has its own driver's licence. There is no "Canadian licence".

Your licence must be registered in the province where you are a resident. For example, if you move from British Columbia (BC) to Ontario, you must apply for an Ontario driver's licence within 60 days of taking up residence in Ontario.

If you have a valid Ontario driver's licence, you can drive anywhere in Canada. However, if you move to another province, you must follow their rules about driver licensing.
