I am still in the process of getting hooked up with a job with them
and finally got a reply that my resume was sent to the recruiting person.
So its still a waiting game to hear from them.

Yes, they build and run some of the work Camps that people live in while working in the oil sands.

They have a shop in Edmonton where the fabricate the buildings before shipping them up north.
Their carpenters are hired through the Edmonton carpenter's union, not sure about their camp staff.

I see. I'm still debating leaving Ontario to go work washing dishes or cleaning or something on a 3 week on 1 week off shift

They are sort of like the Wal-mart of camps.

If that is what it takes, do it.

They make decent money, better than you would make in the city. You get to stay warm while the rest of us freeze our asses off. Plus after 1 or 2 month you should have enough cash to find something else.
