RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
Big shout out to scotian and Irishman, I've been reading this thread since November 8th and finally got the approval to post. Thanks to Donnie514 for driving from Montreal to Calgary, it inspired me to set in motion my leaving Montreal as well in early January 2014. I've read all 80 pages now twice in better grasping all aspects of the oil/gas industry. I have $5,000 saved up with potential rooms to rent and hopefully getting a beater truck when I land in Edmonton. I'll be going for the leasehand positions and will be seeking apprenticeship in either electrician or welder in the future. My work history has been working for a landscaping company down in Florida,USA and mostly warehouse jobs in pool supplies, textiles, adhesives and probiotics in Montreal so I know the meaning of hard labour. I've move more than 10 times in my life to 3 different countries yet thinking about moving to Alberta makes me excited and terrified at the same time. I can't wait to hopefully meet you guys that made the plunge in order to better your lives and not settling for the status quo.
