For Tooners - anywhere better than Ontario for aerospace?

This forum is for all the jumbled up info about Canada. We've asked that, on the info forums, you please post on the relevant forums, start new threads for new topics, and please keep on topic. Otherwise the info is too hard too find for those coming after, and the already overworked Mods end up having to repeatedly answer the same questions. (If your posting is locked in here, please feel free to post again in the appropriate place.)

For Tooners - anywhere better than Ontario for aerospace?

hi Tooners.
we spoke a while ago about working at a airport in canada.
glad to hear you have found something.
i am still looking for work out here, not having much luck, they don't seem to like us brits in ontario especially in the aerospace business.
we are considering moving to another province, any recommendations :?:
take care--Darren

Hell Darren,

Sorry to hear things are going great for you on the job front. I have secured a job at Halifax airport with a company called IMP aerospace, and i know they are still recruiting.
I also have friends over on Vancouver Island who are both in the aerospace businesss. One (mechanic supervisor) works for Canadian sky crane (or air crane) and he tells me he could get me a job tommorrow, the other (radio supervisor) has just started working for a smaller company but the company are looking to expand.
It seems that there are jobs out there but you just need to be in the right place.
I will ask my friends if they know of anything else. Hope this helps and you find something soon.
Let me know how you get on, good luck.

hi Keith,
well what a coincidence, i applied for a job with IMP Aerospace and a woman called Vannessa Mc Phail called me up and said that they are very interested in me. She said that i would be in with a good chance due to the fact that i am already out here. She also said that they have recruited 17 from england. 6 started in June and 1 starts in September (that must be you)
She has put my Resume forward to the Board who will be sitting this Wednesday. So hopefully i will hear something this week.
She also said that they are going over to Salisbury again in July on another recruitment drive.
The only problem i can see with my application is that they are looking for Airframe mechs/techs. i am a Engine tech but iam sure that i will be able to talk my way through that minor problem.
When they interviewed you did they test your Airframe knowledge etc or was it quite informal.
What are the wages and did they give you a relocation package.
Kathryn and i would love to live and work in Nova Scotia (she as also applied to IMP as a HR Manager/Officer)
We also like the sound of Vancouver so if your friend knows anything (a contact name would be great) would you please inform me.
Its highly likely that the Site Admin will move this chat off topic so here is my email address if you want to stay in touch. dazcubb@hotmail.com
So take care for now, and keep us informed, you never know we may be working in the same place. Cheers--Darren

hi, Tooners.
Got an Interview in Halifax July 6th.
We are going there for the weekend, do you want us to look into anything while we are there. e.g rental prices, good places to eat and drink etc.
cheers Darren

If you know you're going off-topic, then why do it? You could just as easily say you're going to reply on one of the socialising boards. Why cause us the extra work of having to split your chit-chat from the info boards? It's a free service - all we ask is that you follow the guidelines.
