RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
I've done some research on the visa issue and found this site:

http://www.international.gc.ca/experienc...spx?view=d

Its a government programme called "International Experience Canada" if you're under 35 and come from one of the many countries listed above (Netherlands and Ireland are there but not the USA, shitty!), you can come and work in Canada for up to a year. Its probably very easy to qualify for, so guys from the UK or Europe can apply, I don't know why we don't have similar agreements with the States, maybe we do?

Neil, those tax rates seem about right, but I'm sure that as a foreigner, you would actually be reimbursed a lot more at the end of the year since you wouldn't be a permanent resident, another thing to look into.
