RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
I managed to secure a gateway job to an electrician's apprentice position on Monday with one of the contractors listed in this thread, after just 5 days of being in Calgary. Including benefits, the 2 week on 1 off rotation should net around $100k per year, and it is only a helper job, not even an actual starter position. Everything scotian (and other great contributers) wrote here is worth its weight in gold. The only problem is it doesn't start till mid-January.

I am eager to do something other than blowing all my money in Banff in the meantime, so I am off to find a 4x4 vehicle with winter tires then drive up and look for a quick rotation directly in Ft Mac. If I can't find anything then Banff it is.

Thank you all very much. I will add relevant updates as they come.
