I can second that, I live in Fort McMurray, Alberta - the heart of the Canadian oil fields. The norm in this city is young guys from all around the world, most with very little education, making lots of money. There are jobs everywhere, it is like no other economy in the country (Canada or US I imagine). If you want to make some money quickly, Fort McMoney is your best option.
Check out www.indeed.ca to look for job postings. It's cold here (-43 Celsius last night with wind chill!) but the opportunity is unparalleled.
