Welcome aboard. This should get you started. Wages are better here but the cost of living is higher too especially with the Canadian dollar in free fall.
Logging jobs are not as plentiful as you think. WorkSafe BC rules regarding certification are strict too. Do your homework before coming on spec.
old age and treachery will always overcome youth and enthusiasm

Would I be wrong to assume you you race KTM's??? XC guy here....welcome to the forum. Are you in the US and wanting to work in Canada? I researched this route several years ago and discovered there is some wicked double taxing if an American works in Canada. I think I have all the tax info maybe retained on a racing forum I am on. When I get home this evening I will look it up and try to link it over. It was pretty discouraging. Also BC has all those training standards. You might be better off hitting Alaska.
