I'm a Canadian journeryman carpenter and been trying for months to land a position.


Yea, I'm at Noralta at the moment, working on a powerline job between Voyageur and Suncor.

I hear the Unions in BC are terrible, I know one guy who payed his dues for 15 years in BC without ever as much as a phone call from the hall.
You need to come to either Calgary or Edmonton to join the halls there.
Plenty of work right now, Ironically enough they even have postings for jobs up at fort Nelson.

Are you staying at the Noralta camp at the top of supertest hill? If so, nice camp!

Yea, it's great. I'm in an executive room too, as requested by Suncor for all our crew.
Good location, good food and decent facilities.
Also a nice ratio of women to men......it must be about 20% women.

Man that's one of the top camps in Fort Mac, good to hear that you're staying there but don't expect that style of camp all of the time, your camp experience can only go down from there! Its also only 20-30 minutes from Fort Mac so if you want to make a quick run into the city, its no big deal, unlike the camps way up north past Fort Mckay or the ones down south near Conklin, remote shit holes.

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