Hi, do we have any Canadian application packagers on this forum?

If so, I wonder if you could advise.

I'm a UK application packager looking at possibly doing some work in Vancouver BC and I wonder if you can tell me a couple of things.

1) What's the packaging market like in Vancouver?

2) In the UK I work on a contract basis (3, 6, 9 month contracts), do you guys in Canada do the same, or is all permie work?

3) What are the good IT job agencies to talk to in Vancouver?

4) What sort of money can I expect to earn packaging on a contract?

Thanks for the help

Mark
