Unless you're Canadian, the hardest part will be obtaining the paperwork and visas to work in Canada, getting a job on the rigs in Alberta is a fairly simple process and of course it depends on how busy it is. Its been busy the past couple of years.

Don’t sweat the petty things, pet the sweaty things.
