    New to the trade, seeking guidance

    Hello everybody! Hoping I can get some help here in learning about some options concerning where to go with this trade. I don't really know much as far as career paths go. All I have as far as certifications go are my Gas Technician 2, TracPipe, System 636 PVC as well as CPVC Flue Gas Venting. I have no experience in the trade other than school. Having just ended a contract locating gas leaks, I'd really like to begin my career in the trade. Being from Ontario, I'm not sure if all options are available to me but any advice would be awesome! Thanks so much!

    Move to alberta, if you can. You'll have a job in minutes.
    I got my G2 back in Ontario and no one would hire because I had no experience.

    Yah that seems to be the general advice I seem to get. That may be my last resort if I don't figure anything out. Thanks!

    You'll be unsatisfied with any employment you get back east.
    Cut your teeth out here, then move back to the unionized/retail wasteland that is Ontario.
    Less tax here also. It's not as expensive as the rumors would lead you to believe.
