So /sci/ I'm in highschool, have a facination in space, and hope to become a space/aerospace engineer. My question is what is the job market like in southern ontario (Canada)? Would I need to move to the states for any chance at a job or what?
Canada has one of the most successful Aerospace industries outside of the USA.
For the best job opportunities, learn French the best you can and study Mechanical Engineering at sn accredited school, or Aerospace Engineering at Ryerson or Carleton.

Space Engineering at York has been accredited since '07 for P.Eng certification eligible.
That said, it seems pointless to pigeonhole yourself to the space industry so early on. In the two Aerospace engineering degrees, you have to make the Aeronautical/Astronautical call after your third year (giving you more exposure to the industry, which doesn't ever hurt).
UofT may offer it within Engineering Science, but that's no better/different than selecting the Aerospace stream within most Mechanical Engineering degrees.
Thoughts OP: You're /very/ late to apply to Eng programs, so you've either missed the boat or you're underage b&.
Follow-up thoughts: most American aerospace companies are subjected to The International Traffic in Arms Regulations, and are only willing to hire American citizens. Makes getting in with only a Bachelor's degree nearly impossible. Sponsorship for work Visas is much less a thing today than it used to be.
Aerospace means you're probably gonna be working at Bombardier making plane props. If you like space, study astrophysics though you'd likely just end up as a teacher. How many jobs do you really think there are that involves going to space really?
