Should you branch out to forestry?

Posted by Jackie Burns, Hays VP on Tuesday, Sep 1, 2015

International demand for timber is driving opportunities in Canada's forestry industry, especially for skilled tradespeople such as millwrights, mechanics and electricians. Should you consider planting the seeds of a new career path?

Forestry has traditionally paid lower salaries than mining or oil and gas, but these employers are working to turn around that trend, with gradual increases expected over the next three to five years.

There are lots of opportunities in the processing side for electricians and millwrights, and candidates who are moving in that direction are particularly attracted to the job security and stability, and the potential for a better lifestyle. With most plants based in accessible rural towns, tradespeople are choosing to settle themselves and their families in these communities, close to recreational areas and provincial parks. hard hat man trades pic
