RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
I'm still considering this as a back up plan.

I used to be a reasonable skilled carpenter for many years but i don't think i can do a job like that in Canada since the building styles differs a lot between American styled houses (all wood) and Dutch houses (all brick)

All that wood made me think, how about jobs as a house painter?

I have some experience in that and the work is way easier and less straining on the body. When I worked construction in my twenties I already felt my bones every time I woke up and had back problems on the regular. I can't imagine it will be different now that i'm 35. it will be worse I guess.

To make a long story short: are jobs for house painters overthere?
