I hear ya with the under paid thing, although I make a great wage, when I fix a machine to get it back out mining, it (depending on the machine) can pull in half a million dollars in a day... and mechanics dont even get a production bonus... After I am done here (7 more weeks) I am going to work for a mining contractor for good wage plus 3/4 production bonus... anyways great move on your part getting into something alot better and making more money. I thought income tax in Alberta was only 10%?
Total income tax for me as an employee is 33%, as an independent contractor it will be 17%. Alberta is still the lowest taxes in the country because we get so much royalties from the oil companies.

Been there, also worked in the arctic circle. There is no difference between that far north and being an hour into the bush working at a fly-in only camp except how long your flight is. Winters are just as bad, but the arctic jobs such when your internal clock is totally screwed up by the amount of daylight/night you have to deal with.
