Good trade careers in demand

30 posts in this topic

What are some high demand, good paying trades in demand right now and for the future in BC?

Aiming for $100K trades, obviously not right off the bat but ones with the potential.

And yes money isn't everything, but it sure is a big chunk.

well... at the moment anyways, your pretty much stuck to mines or camp work (oil sands).. but once the inevitable pipeline starts to get built, anything involved with the oil industry would be a great choice. instrumentation, pipe fitting and machine operators come to mind...

i'm an electrician, and i had to move to Edmonton for decent-paying work... until i get my mine job in BC soon B)

Are you ticketed? How do you find the electrician trade? Industrial or construction?

I'm a construction electrician foreman working in downtown Vancouver and should make over 90k this year, that is including quite a bit of OT though.

If you really want to make over 100k, you will most likely have to go up north.

Just wondering what a 'hella lot' is these days? Good luck on getting your ticket. <------- genuine, not sarcasm.

Plumbing makes tons. My dad doesn't work less than 200 dollars an hour and has work galore.

If you don't mind getting dirty or getting gypsum in your lungs, get into drywalling. Lots of money, and lots of demand because no one wants to do it.

How do you guys in trades generally feel about your health? (short term and long term)
