well i am from alberta and just giving you all a heads up for one it helps to know someone that already works for a company in fort mcmurray area. And 2 the wage people have posted are a little high but you can make up to 39 to 47 hr straight time. but it will take you awhile to get on. It takes you about 3 weeks or so from your first interview to start working . there is 2 interviews the first one takes 2 weeks to hear back and then you get the next one after that there is drug and a health check will also be done. hope this helps and good luck to you.
