Most cooks in lots of the camps in Nunavut work for 1978,thats a contract company that supplies cooks to exploration camps.You generally work 4 to 6 weeks on and 2 off in Nunavut camps.The cook in my first camp was Dianne,the cook mentioned in the book the barrenlands where they discovered Canada's first diamond find.The key to working like this is contacts,dont burn any bridges and tough it out no matter how hard it is.When you get good enough you can start your own bussiness and then go contracting out as a cook.These are smallish camps,not like the 2000 man camps at the oilsands but you can make a name for yourself very fast in the small camps.Your just a number in the big camps.

I don't think anyone will pay to move a family from Quebec to Alberta to cook ... unless there were no cooks in the province. That's not the case. Also, I don't think you will find a place to live without going to Alberta to rent something. If you want to cook in Alberta, you'll have to visit Alberta, find a place to live, interview for jobs and then move your family.

Also ... about being flown in and out of the camps ... executives and professional are flown in and out of the camps, but I'm not convinced that regular employees are flown in and out. I think they take the bus.

I worked in a camp a couple of decades back (exploration) and
I sure wasn't an Executive or a professional anything at that time.

Once the equipment was up & in place, we where flown in & out.
Again, this was in the late '80's or early 90's, so maybe things
aren't now what they once where. Someone with more current
knowledge could fill in that blank.

I'd assume the location of the camp would have a bering on things
also.

It's still the same. Fly in do your deuce and off for a deuce. Depending on location of course.

Flights are allways paid except for a few fort mac outfits that want you to move but they will put you up in camp while you are there.
Most places fly you on their bill though.Flying to the arctic camps is about ten times the cost though so if you go up there expect to work 6 or 7 weeks before getting your 2 week turnover.
