I'm from SK and have worked up in ft mac. i'm hearing lots of radio ads for Albian sands lately. That job site is about 30-45 min north of ft mac and is a camp job. You might want to check this out. I'm not sure what kind of work your looking to do but i'm sure you can can find something easy enough.

Basically im looking for entry level work sine i really dont have any trade persay just good with my hands and can build or fix pretty much anything. Ill be going with my h2s and air brake endorsement. Alot of what i see on the sites they seem to be looking for alot of higher end jobs but i keep hearing tey are hireing entry level all the time so are the sites just not up to date? I know the best is fr me to head out there for a week and just pound the pavement. Whicj will prolly end up happening but i like to go with as much knowledge or "ins" as i can..thanks phil

The web sites just don't post the entry level stuff. Those jobs are as common as dirt up there. I have worked for flint field services. I was on the Suncor Firebag site for a few months as an electrician and didn't mind it. The work tends to be a little mindless but thats not always the case. Having your air brake endorsement is an asset for most places. If you end up at firebag say hi to my dad for me , he's a fuel truck driver for flint. If you would like i can get a phone # for HR up there
