I am also from Germany and when I came to Halifax in 2006, was able to get
a regular job offer as a Java Programmer based on my IT skills before I had
any work permit. The company actually supported me through the process for
the work permit.

As a German he quite likely speaks acceptable English, especially as he
managed to find a Canadian girlfriend. :)

His IT skills sound pretty good, so maybe he could simply apply to job
openings in the the regular way.

I find the indeed.ca meta-search quite helpful:
