Workers from Atlantic Canada traditionally fill oil and gas jobs in the Edmonton Oil & Gas sector but recent offshore drilling in the Atlantic is keeping them on the east coast. Edmonton Oil & Gas companies are now looking to the U.S. to fill this job surplus.
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada (PRWEB) June 20, 2012
A recent article announced that Ottawa is taking steps to ease employee relocation efforts for Oil & Gas companies in Edmonton Alberta seeking specialized workers and professionals from the U.S. But with offshore drilling in Canada’s Atlantic fast becoming a reality, workers are staying put. Enter the U.S. labor force.
With the U.S. job market continuing to struggle in many areas placing specialized workers, professionals, and executives on the hunt, Edmonton Alberta is becoming an attractive and viable option. These workers are not only seeking a temporary solution, they are looking at making Edmonton a long term place of residence as demand for high paid labor in the energy sector is projected to remain strong.
