Thread: Canada is the place to be if you run Heavy Equipment

    Canada is the place to be if you run Heavy Equipment

    Good evening from cold Northern Alberta, not many people are aware how much money there is to be made in Canada running and supervising heavy equipment. I have the secret to make lots of money out here and it's relatively easy to get going. It will take a bit of time to get a visa and there are certain things you will need to do to make it happen. First thing is the NOT GOING TO HAPPEN RULES....... age: if you are over 48 it's not happening, if you have criminal record less than ten years old it isn't happening, if you are not very good at what you do don't waste your time.
    I am a Field supervisor in the oil sands and I have been here for 9 years, I know how it works out here and it has taken me at least six of those years to figure it out, I am willing to help in any way I can to get good guys out here. The good points are the money easily attain $150,000 per year as an operator and a fair bit more as a supervisor.
    The Canadians love the British operators because we are about the best in the world, I can let anyone interested talk to a few of the guys that work for and with me, some from Ireland and from the mainland. I am not kidding guys there is GOLD IN THESE HERE HILLS ( well oil to be exact)
    I work for a huge company up here and if you get in you will have a pretty good chance of getting on with us. Nothing is guaranteed but what have you got to lose? Oh and by the way the shift can be 21 and 7 or 14 and 7, most of the companies up here supply a camp accommodation all found and flights from Calgary or Edmonton.

    Stupid question will not be answered!! This is not an offer of work just a chance to give a new life a go, I did and I have a 10 acre farm a brand new truck a big boat and lots of holidays. I am not being big headed just being realistic to what you guys can achieve doing what you love.

    I had no intent to spam, and as there is no interest from your members I am pretty much wasting my time.
    If I had the help I am offering guys ten years ago, I would have jumped at it, anyway I'm out of here. please delete my account,
    Thanks.
