RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
Vancanier Permanent,
that's awesome to hear. I have a few stupid questions to ask:
- how to go about securing a labourer job whilst having no experience in this field (I'd love to be set up in Ft. McMurray)

I don't mind getting down and dirty for a season (shovel shit/snow or clean just anything for that matter). I thought about getting my ass out there (I'm from Ontario and VIA rail ticket prices are on sale all the time: http://www.viarail.ca/en/deals) and then just calling up companies and handing out resumes. Problem is my resume is more suited for a job at the mall. Anyways I'm in the process of getting my H2S (you can get it in Ontario through here if anyone's looking: http://www.ptscanada.com/h2s-courses/) and will get my OSSA, CSTS once I'm in Alberta.

Honestly this thead is awesome and big ups to Scotian and the rest who've taken time to give all this info out freely. All you other young dudes who don't really know what to do or are struggling in Uni/College or whatever this is a great way to make money and fund a lifestyle that seems flexible. Its hard work but I think its worth it.
