You'll have to advise your employer that you will not be able to come to Canada for at least 6 months between treatment and repeat sputum culture. Probably longer when you factor in getting your permit.

TB patients can make it to Canada once they have no longer have TB. You will likely need to find a new employer due to the delay. This is not an uncommon situation.
