Topic tags/keywords: question employment canada jobs

Are there any woodworkers (cabinetmakers specifically) working or making a living with woodworking? I am and have been looking for info on Jobs in New Brunswick, Canada (and surrounding provinces), by what I mean is average pay, job opportunities, education/qualification needed or restrictions, or if there is any work in the cabinet making/custom woodwork area at all there.

I have looked on the internet at various job finding web sites, and have found a thing or two but no definite information on wages, and whatnot. Not to mention I am hearing conflicting accounts (because of conditions of the economy) that there is no work, and then the next thing I read is that Canada is looking for handworkers…. very contradicting.

Its all very confusing (because of perhaps too much info available—ton of articles to read if you google jobs in canada) and I was just curious if anybody here can give me the straight dope?—on custom woodwork job opportunities or even instructional positions I am open to anything and am getting the itch again to move this time to Canada! (perhaps)

maybe someone knows someone who know someone who needs german know how ;-) who know?

Isn’t Rob Cosman in New Brunswick? I don’t think he does “production” work, but he might have contacts in the area. He has always been helpful and nice when I have contacted him about other topics.
