I’m dredging through old posts researching rates in Canada & came across this post - as someone with a down under accent who works in Canada periodically I think it’s worth mentioning that there a

I always like to quote a good buddy of mine (and agree ) .....   "I don't get out of bed for less than $1500.00 a day!"   I don't give out my rates as they are between me and the company but I wi

This season I was aware of work in lights, $200 per hr, 4 hr mins if hired. Another company was paying $225 per hr, 2 hr mins in intermediates.

Buddy of mine flying on contract is getting 225 per day + 100/hr flight pay moving drills with an Astar. Guaranteed 250 hrs for the season and 2 hours min per work day averaged over the season (May to September). He gets his daily on travel days, but no flight pay. He gets per diem on travel days and days he's not in camp. Tours are 4/2.

 

That works out to about 50k guaranteed for five months of work. No so bad if you've got another job lined up for the winter, but a little light if that's your whole year's take... :mellow:

Where's the beef? 412 Driver and his "good buddy" don't get out of bed for less than $1500 a day! Heck, even the guys in the Sandbox weren't raking that in!
