The Bakken oil field (which stretches into Canada) is huge and crazy busy now, if you really want to get into the oil biz, why not move there, get the experience and make some good, quick cash then explore other options, such as working in Canada. Remember, if you want to come to Canada, the visa process can be a very loooong one, it could be a year or more before you get one!

One thing though, this is a different type of oil than we have in Fort Mac, its mostly rig work there if I'm not mistaken, Fort Mac is oil sands mining with on-site upgraders and refineries, I personally would never work on an oil rig!!!


Thanks for the lead. Will look into it.
