RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
I just filled in a form for a permanent visa at a Dutch/Canadian visa agency. I will hear from them in a few days if i can aply for a permanet Canadian visa. Otherwise i can apply for a temporary worker visa since my education is on the POL ( Priority Occupation List ) I'm a skilled carpenter. well, i was many years ago.

I guess once i'm there i could switch jobs if i find something better paying.

@scotian, i just found this site http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/tx/ndvdls/fq/txrts-eng.html
According to this i only pay 26 % if i make less than 132k. And 29% above that ( i wish)

Is that correct ? In Holland i used to pay 42% income tax. its 52% if you make big bucks.

is Canada really that low on income tax ? That means i pocket 74k on a 100k salary.

The provincial tax rate for alberta is only 10 %. Whats the difference between provincial and federal ?. Do i need to pay both ?
