There is to be expected 400 oil rigs drilling for the last half of the 2010 season. This was mentioned today at a conference in Calgary earlier this week.
This will bring in more spin off jobs and money to the local communities surrounding the work sites. With 150,000 oil workers working in Alberta alone this might be your chance to jump in. We have mentioned in other posts that this is a great time to get into this industry. With jobs being the number one thing on peoples mind, so is job security. With this expected growth, you can’t go wrong.
Northern Alberta and British Columbia is where you will make the most money. They offer the highest pay and the best benefits. Try to stay out of the local bars, that’s where you will spend your money. This is what I was told by a couple of students from the U.S. who are working up in Canada today. ” Great money if you can save it”.
