No trade skill or exp., no family members in Canada, no offers from an employer?

Either get a trade or move to North Dakota/Pennsylvania.

The US is ratcheting up it's oil/natural gas industry. The paranoid part of my brain thinks this why Keystone pipeline hasn't been approved. Keeping Keystone mothballed increases local production.

Canada tends to pay better because we have a lack of labour, especially skilled labour. However most jobs in the oilfield are long hour jobs. So you can make good money making a low wage. Once you get into the industry it's relatively easy to network and move on/up.
