RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
Im an Aussie heading over to Calgary within the next few months on a Working Holiday Visa Banana I have some experience on a Mine site plus plenty of work on an industrial site. Now Im not even sure if getting involved in the oil sands is my calling haha, aiming elsewhere workwise to begin with. I want to to enjoy myself, hit the slopes. But like all plans they often turn to shit and If im overseas and need money then I know where I will be heading.

Just looking for updates on what exactly is going on or what will be happening in the near future ?

If I dont pounce will I miss my opportunity ?

How may Scots/Irish/Poms/Aussies etc etc go there with Romantic notion of this line of work. If Im handing in resumes I want to know what im up against ?

Should I choose Edmonton over Calgary maybe ?

I have read this whole thread in the past (great thread) but as things have changed how far back again should I go ?
