Advice on employment and towns
« on: April 11, 2013, 11:34:29 PM »
Long story short I lost the most loving, caring and thoughtful women on earth a few days ago, my mother. Having quite a hard to dealing with it.

Anyways, I was planning on finding work and moving close to her in BC so she could be close to my wife and kids more. Now that plan is scrapped and am trying to find a new area. I am a registered 1st year millwright, worked as a apprentice hd mechanic and much much more on resume. I would prefer something with a 4 on 4 off, week on week off type schedule but wont be to picky. I would like to stay in my trade and was wondering what there is for mills, plants etc around. Was thinking about the white court/drayton area.

any ideas of info let me know please

Sorry to hear about your mom fishcat, my most sincere condolences.

There are several good areas for your skill set, Whitecourt would be a good choice, as well as Slave Lake. Red Deer is quite busy as well especially if you have HD mechanic experience. If you were interested in the Red Deer area PM me I would have several contacts for you.

First off my condolences fishcat thats tough news to hear, just remeber time heals all wounds my friend.

All the area's Paul mentioned ar busy right now as well as the north east. Cold Lake and Bonniville are insane. Anone with your skill set would find work with in a week I am sure. If you are a papered mill right most of the SAGD plants are in high demand of them. Any number of remanafacturing shops up here for pump jack and pumps and down hole tools. There are a couple outfits in the area looking now for mill rights. It is a nice area to live in,, loads of fishing and good hunting. The biggest down fall would be the price of real estate, rent is crazy. Just another thought for you.

Good luck in what ever you do.

Just click on a town you may want to live in and see what is there for you.

Where are you at now?

What is your number one outdoor activity? (Fly fishing for trout?  Pike and Walleye? Water fowl hunting? Moose,elk,deer?)

I lived too many years in Edmonton.  Now near Rocky Mountain House I am really happy to be here.  Not too far from nice trout streams and good hunting in all directions.

I have actually been looking at that town and trying to see what there is for apprentice millwright work
