Probably 0%. Even being in Canada none of the guys on this board could say to their boss MicTyson is a stand up dude but lives 3000km away from the job site give him a job. These companies aren't going to invest in a nobody(myself included) who isn't there in person. Maybe if you had a trade certification but no experience= unknown=dangerous= killing yourself/someone else= destroying equipment. Why not see if your buddy will front you the cash for a train ticket and a hostel, at least then you'll be in the same country as the company and have his recommendation giving you a foot in the door. Best of luck to you.
