How to start building a credit history before arriving in Canada

Today I applied for an American Express card here in Spain after learning that this could be the easiest way to start building a credit history that you can transfer to another country. Big credit card companies such as Visa and Mastercard don't seem to offer anything similar to the Global Card Transfer by American Express. Theoretically this should be quite a nice possibility to build a credit history that we can take over to Canada once we move.
