For more than 100 years, pollution from the local industries poured into the environment. The town was the biggest producer of acid rain-causing chemicals in North America, and the region became notorious for its landscape, stripped by acid rain.
I am not Sudbury or its mines and I have in no way been affiliated with them.

Also you're way too late on this. Sudbury's cleaned up a lot and it's reputation for being a dirty town is pretty well on it's way of being behind it. A lot of these mines and slagging have since been done with, and your links are decade(s) old. It's nowhere near as bad as it has been in the past.

It sounds as if you'd need to apply under Canada's Temporary Foreign Workers Program. Please remember that the oil industry is still supposed to hire qualified Canadian citizens first. Some companies have attempted to exploit this program, as was the case a couple months ago when ironworkers in northern Alberta were laid off in order to hire (cheaper) Croatians.

Since you don't have experience, it may prove an uphill battle. Good luck!

To the OP. Honestly, I wouldn't waste your time. The reason salaries are extrordinary is that the costs of living, or merely existing in Ft.Mac are astronomical. If you want to be in O&G, take your finance degree and see what's happening in Aberdeen. Almost every company there has operations elsewhere in the world.

I'm speaking with the voice of experience, the opportunities for you are only limited by your desire to work for them.
