Is it difficult for Australians to find work in Canada? I'll be looking for Doc Control positions in mining.?

I'm hoping to leave Australia for 12months to check out Canada and USA (favorably USA)! Just wondering if it would be easy to pick up a well paid job as a doc controller in Mining or Construction? I have 6years in Project Admin and 2years in Project Doc Control. I'm 25 years old. Also I'm wondering to Mines generally work on a roster of some many days/ weeks on the job then days/ weeks off... e.g 2 weeks on then 1 week off roster? Also would it be difficult for myself to get a US working visa? Should I forget about the USA and concentrate on a Canadian Visa? Sal

You have to have a visa for Canada. We found no-one would discuss jobs with us as that is illegal on a tourist visa.

The mining industry in Canada is doing fairly well now, especially gold mining. I have no idea on the demand for Project Doc Control. i suggest you contact large mining companies directly and ask. Most mines are in remote areas. How does -40 C weather sound to you?
