Go west in the great Canada oil rush of ‘07

Canda has launched a campaign to attract 100,000 new citizens in an appeal reminiscent of the great colonial migrations of the middle of the 20th century.

Workers and their families from scientists and machinists to doctors and carers are being urged to move to the province of Alberta to help cope with the demand for jobs fuelled by the oil boom. Canada already takes in about 250,000 immigrants a year – about 1 per cent of the population – but the opening of massive oil sands in the western province means that even that boost cannot meet surging demand for specialist and support jobs.
