Not familiar with Vancouver, but until you can find a mentor, another option might be to check out some youtube videos. That's how I learned to do our dogs' nails. A vet tech at the vet you use might be willing to show you how to do the anal glands and basic techniques for ear care. The clipping would probably be easier to learn from a groomer, but you might be able to find videos for that, too, depending on how complicated or ornate you want to get.
