Making the Jump: IR to IB (Canada)

Rank: Chimp | 12

So I'm currently working in the Financial Services industry as an Investment Rep, client facing role, doing trades etc. I've wanted to be an Investment Banker for a while but I no doubt underestimated how prepared I had to be, and thought that entering the finance industry from any avenue would at least give me some experience I could spin to someday break into IB. But I'm realizing if I want to break in, I should 100% be looking to get in ASAP. I'm 24, graduated in 2016, been working in Financial Planning companies for about a year now. What steps would I need to take to make the switch to going after a career in IB now?
