By summer 2013 I was working in the construction industry for two and a half years. I also worked exclusively in northern Alberta in the most booming town in all of Canada, Fort McMurray. There’s a lot criticism about Fort McMurray both good and bad, but it has been nothing but good to me up to this point.
I was in the region for a university work-term during the economic meltdown in 2008. I saw billions of dollars’ worth of projects shutdown almost instantly. But that was 5 years earlier and the town’s housing situation was still recovering. Surely, it couldn’t drop more right?
