project engineer or mechanical engineer? Which way to go?

I was a mechanical engineer for 2 years and later became a project engineer for 2.5 years an oil refining engineering inc. Now, when I come to the job hunting in a new country, CANADA, I don't know which way to go? I prefer project engineer a little bit more than Mechanical Engr. coz I think Project Engr. will lead to Project Manager in the future, which will generally have a higher salary than Technical positions. But the problem is, will Project Engineer has the opportunity of advancement to Project manager?? Some people tell me Project Managers most likely are promoted from Sr. Technical Engineers instead of Project Engineer. Anyone who knows where Project Engineer will go, how they will advance? Any comments are appreciated
