Thanks for reaching out. Reason you are focusing solely on Canadian programs? I presume it has to do with your career goals, but I still like to ask.
As for your chances, I think the GMAT score could hurt you a bit, but not so much that you shouldn't still apply. The biggest thing for you is taking what I call "meet them halfway" career experiences and using them to your advantage. Whenever you have work experience that either qualifies as non-traditional or that maybe creates questions as to how "MBA" it is, the burden is on the applicant to meet the adcom halfway. Don't just state what you did and hope they extract the right meaning. Get in there and really paint a picture of what these experience taught you. Focus on the transferable skills that will apply to your post-MBA career. Stress the way your perspective has been shaped in such a way that you truly solve problems in a creative way. Talk about how your experiences will add value to the class dynamic. It's your job to say "here's what I did, but more importantly, here's WHAT IT MEANS." Very few candidates do this effectively, which is why we're in business. But that's the biggest challenge facing your right now.
I hope this is helpful. PM if you have any follow up questions.
