25% bonus for isolation pay is insane, nice one, is that through the company or the Canadian government? I know that if you live above a certain latitude, you're able to complain certain tax benefits and that includes Fort Mac residents. I've never claimed them as I've always claimed residency in Etown, but I should change my address to Fort Mac, since I don't technically live anywhere, lol, life of a nomadic oil worker.

It's through the company. I guess they have a hard time getting people to stay working up here.
