I recently moved from another province and need to change my number to a local phone number for job purposes. Am I able to set up call forwarding from my old number to my new number if I cancel the old number? I'm just wondering because I have already sent out job apps with the old number but I really need to switch now.

Unfortunately that is not possible.
Once you change your number your old number is gone.

I recommend getting another phone line and phone with a local number.  Something cheap and prepaid.   Then use that as a temp situation until you are ready to change your number officially
