RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
Just joined to say thanks to scotion. I'm from Vancouver Island BC and hope to make it over soon. I'm a JM carpenter with red seal and did my CSTS. I'm hoping for a camp job as I own a house here on the island and have a family so would prefer to keep my base here. I applied (online) for over 45 positions almost 2 weeks ago and still haven't heard anything. Is this a bad time of year for camp work as a carpenter? How long does it usually take to hear back from these guys once you apply? Why can't you wear white or green hard hats?

Thanks again for the write up scotion. Found it through google while researching work in the oilsands.
