Adventurous and skill building career aside from the Military?

As a Canadian, is it possible for me to join something like the Army where I can learn and do all kinds of cool stuff (like what you see in all the commercials) without having to do the unpleasant business of killing people and whatnot?

My two main issues with actually joining the army are ethics concerns and some injuries and issues with fainting if I stand for a long time. Aside from those getting to do all of the things that you learn in the army sounds awesome.
I want to do things like get certification to drive different vehicles, jump out of a plane, learn close quarter combat etc.
If there is no other real alternative is it possible to join the Canadian army in a capacity where I will never be asked to directly do harm to an "enemy", yet still do all of that cool stuff and not be stuck behind a desk?
