Canada offers a wealth of opportunities in a range of well-paid and highly skilled roles. Shortages of skilled labor have led the Federal Government to develop a Fast-Track entry system for individuals with high-priority skills. This makes the country a great choice for those looking to build a new life and career. This list looks at some of the best opportunities for 2017-2018 based on the Federal Government's list of in-demand occupations. Cardiology technologists Cardiology technologists are in demand in Canada as the result of the large aging population. The highest average hourly wage for a cardiology technologist can be found in Calgary at $44.27 per hour. The lowest average hourly wage for a cardiology technologist can be found in Halifax at $20.85 per hour. The significant number of the jobs available in this sector can be found in health care and social assistance. To work as a cardiology technologist in Canada (with the exception of Quebec) a technologist must be registered with the Canadian Society of Cardiology Technologists. Salary Ranges: ● Hourly: CAD$20.45 - C$33.75 ● Annual: C$43,451 - C$69,701 Professional Body: Canadian Society of Cardiology Technologists Respiratory therapist respiratory therapist positions are Toronto and Calgary followed by Winnipeg and Vancouver. Positions for respiratory therapists are most widely available with sleep and respiratory care specialty clinics. Entry level positions fall at the lowest end of the pay spectrum, but with five or more years of experience, pay rates rise considerably. Salary Ranges: ● Hourly: C$23.78 – C$41.99 ● Annual: C$44,769 – C$87,897 Professional Body: The Canadian Society of Respiratory Therapists GEOSCIENTIST AND OCEANOGRAPHERS Despite the crash in oil prices in recent years the continuing need to exploit the mineral wealth in Canada is still a priority. However, environmental concerns remain a key concern and this means that the role of both geoscientists and oceanographers will be contribute to in coming years. The demand is likely to grow in the immediate future and is also expected outstrip the available skills in the native workforce. Salary Ranges: ● Annual: C$54,044 - C$141,772 Professional Body: Geoscientists Canada/Géoscientifiques Canada ENGINEERING - CHEMICAL, MINING, PETROLEUM, GEOLOGICAL, and AEROSPACE As with construction management, engineering careers can be found consistently high on the list of the “Eligible Federal Skilled Worker Occupations” and, again, management level will get you more points. A broad field, the engineering sectors listed above are all consistently on the list of required workers in short supply. This is another field that is being hit by the retirement issue and one where opportunities are expected to continue to grow for those beginning their careers. Salaries can vary in the different sectors and also across the different regions of Canada. Salary Ranges: ● Chemical Engineer: ○ Hourly: C$12.96 - C$57.81 ○ Annual: C$45,128- C$102,323 ● Mining / Geological Engineer: ○ Hourly: C$39.04 ○ Annual: C$56,575- C$124,764 ● Petroleum Engineer: ○ Hourly: C$50.08 ○ Annual: C$63,421- C$232,240 ● Aerospace Engineer: ○ Hourly: C$17.00 - C$47.92 ○ Annual: C$49,248- C$111,006 Professional Body: Varies by province and territory and specialty, see Engineers Canada/Ingénieurs Canada for detailed information.

This video is a University of Manitoba Space Applications and Technology Society (UMSATS) entry into the NASA International Space Apps Challenge of 2014. The video describes our design concept for how to run a competition in which university or college students build CubeSats to accomplish specified requirements. Our design ideas on what a CubeSat Competition should be include: 1) A set of requirements on how the competition should be run or organized. The core idea is that competition needs to focus on serving the student's needs, and matching it with the educational goals. 2) That gaming should be a core element of how the teams manage their development. We want to replace Gantt charts with Games. 3) We provide first hand experience on what works and what doesn't for such competitions. 4) A wiki space to hack together collaboratively to make a better way to run such CubeSat Competitions. 5) That all the designs and solutions from each annual competition cycle shall be made open source to accelerate space systems development.

Speaker: Prof. Leontios J. Hadjileontiadis (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki) Title: Emotions - Action Representation - Music Liking and EEG: An advanced signal processing perspective towards innovative human assistive technology Date: Thursday, April 07, 2016 Abstract: The proposed lecture will present advanced achievements in the field of affective computing towards more enhanced human-computer-interaction interfaces, presenting advanced signal processing techniques and implementations applied to Electroencephalogram (EEG) recordings. In particular, the way emotions are 'reflected' in our brain signals, the way actions (both in explicit and implicit way, e.g., gestures in music) are combined with internal representations in our brain (involving mirror neuron system activation), and how our brain decides if it likes or not the perceived music will be presented and discussed. Moreover, potential implementations of the findings in the field of human assistive technology will be shown, including innovative ways of pain management, Alzheimer's and Parkinson’s community support. Biosketch: Prof. Leontios J. Hadjileontiadis (π-1966), received his Diploma in Electrical Engineering in 1989 and the Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering in 1997, both from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH), Thessaloniki, Greece.

Currently I am working as a project engineer in a private company at Muscat (Sultanate of Oman). I want to do Masters from Canada in Transportation Engineering or Mining Engineering. My percentage in B.tech is 64% only and I am not eligible in most of the universities except Alberta University and Manitoba University. I got to know about some colleges like Mohawk college, Fanshawee College, Seneca Colege as they are providing my interest degree but they are providing advanced diploma which requires only 12th class as their eligible criteria. So my B.tech degree is of no use? If I opt for Project Management (2yrs course in some universities), will it help? I want to shift to Canada permanently as I do not like India (my home country) as its getting politically worse day by day. Your suggestions are most welcome. Thank you.

For the first time, students from across Canada united in Toronto and held a national event to launch the annual Catholic Students' Week. Called the "Proclaim Integrity with Justice Weekend ," 25 representatives from 10 universities gathered at Romero House Jan. 31 to Feb 2. Romero House is a welcome centre for refugees and was deemed a fitting place to kick off the week. "This is an excellent place to begin Catholic Students' Week because it is a place where Catholics have recognized that there's a desperate need for a warm welcome and justice for refugees," said Lori Neale, national coordinator for the Canadian Catholic Campus Ministry and Canadian Catholic Students' Association. The CCCM and CCSA held the event in conjunction with Romero House, the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace, Jesuit Volunteers Canada, Scarboro Missions, Intercordia Canada and the Society of Jesus. The weekend 's activities included street theatre and a presentation by Development & Peace on the mining practices of Canadian companies and what students can do on campus to aid Development & Peace in solidarity with the Global South. Catholic Students' Week is meant to unite students who witness to the Gospel on campus, said Neale. According to CCSA president Daniela Dabrowski, "The hope is to raise awareness that we are Catholic and we are really proud of our identity as Catholics." Catholic students at almost 42 post-secondary institutions planned to celebrate Catholic Students' Week with over 300 events, according to a press release. "I'm excited that Catholic Students' Week is growing," said Neale. This year three new camp uses are involved in the celebrations: University of Calgary, Université de Moncton and Acadia University. "This shows that the activity of the Catholic students on campus is growing and (so is) the connection to a national movement," said Neale. Some notable events scheduled for the week included a talk by Cardinal Thomas Collins on Dante's Divine Comedy at the University of Toronto at Mississauga, a discussion with Archbishop Richard Gagnon at St. Paul's College at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, and a public lecture on Pope Francis and a 30-hour fast for social justice at Corpus Christian College and St. Mark's Parish at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. Events also included ecumenical and interfaith gatherings. There are about 16 Catholic Students' Week events at UBC because there are many groups that have evolved out of this vibrant Catholic culture that is already present on campus, said Michael Goco, UBC Newman Club president. "There's opportunity for evangelization... Each person will respond differently to a type of activity. Some will be more inclined to respond to intellectual events, some to more social gatherings, some to more spiritual opportunities such as prayer." Other partners and collaborators of Catholic Students' Week include Catholic Campus Outreach, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, vocations offices and many local religious congregations. The week is celebrated with the support of the Canadian Catholic Conference of Bishops.

Muhammad Shaikh, born in India, part of the Muslim exodus to Pakistan in 1947, came to Canada in 1959. Trained as an engineer, he worked in many different fields but spent most of his working life as a highschool teacher in Scarborough, part of metropolitan Toronto. Teaching, he says, is his true calling. Today, Muhammad lives in Peterborough. In this video, he talks about his early career, starting work related to his engineering degree from Pakistan in Winnipeg, moving on to the mining town of Thompson, Manitoba, and then to Montreal where he earned a B.A. taking night courses at Concordia University. Since schools in Montreal were all confessional, he could not find work as a teacher there, which is how he finally ended up in Scarborough, Ontario. Told with humour and compassion, don't miss this second video featuring Muhammad Sheikh's immigrant story.

Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre. Great things happen when our brightest minds have the freedom to explore. When we pursue our unique interests, the resulting collective capacity for innovation is limitless. The issues of the future will require these creative solutions as the need to build connections between people, nations and disciplines has never been greater. The topic of ‘human-robot interaction’ will still be a hot one in 100 years. The tools may change but the problems, such as “How do people and robots get along?” will remain the same. Questions surrounding what robots should do; and how we can share, operate safely, communicate, take turns, teach robots, and generally get along together will continue to be problems requiring solutions. The efforts we make to establish the ‘rules of engagement’ now will certainly be foundational to our future relationships.

He explored the current state of global and major national energy dependencies and appraised the likely speed of their transformation. In his words, "The desirable development of new renewables should not be guided by wishful preferences and arbitrary targets. Using more energy, albeit more efficiently and with lower specific environmental effects, is unlikely to change our fortunes — yet no serious consideration has been given to how to use less, much less."

http://www.icr.org/article/7068/288 Researchers discovered eight well-manufactured throwing spears in an Ice Age coal deposit near Schöningen, Germany. They are calling these the oldest human tools. What can forensic science reveal about the people who made them? Portions of the Schöningen open pit coal mine were set aside for archaeological work decades ago. In 1997, Hartmut Thieme of the Lower Saxony State Office for Heritage described three spears that he found in the Helmstedt lignite coal mine.1 They were constructed to such exacting specifications that replicas of them performed as well as modern javelins in throwing tests. The site also contained fossils of fruit, other vegetation, birds, fish, and thousands of mammal bones representing rhinoceros, elephant, cows, red deer, many smaller mammals, and mostly horses—including many horse bones with cut marks from butchery. Such an assemblage of various animals and human remains clearly indicate that a severe Ice Age storm washed them into a low-lying area and quickly covered them with mud.2 Indeed, it had all been submerged for centuries until engineers drained the area to expose and mine its coal. Archaeologists from the University of Tubingen found eight additional spears from the Schöningen coal mine. They appear to have been mass produced. Like javelins, their center of gravity was balanced toward the front of each spear. The news release said, "The spears and other artifacts as well as animal remains found at the site demonstrate that their users were highly skilled craftsmen and hunters, well adapted to their environment—with a capacity for abstract thought and complex planning comparable to our own."3 The additional spears corroborate the significance of the 1997 spears, which had rewritten evolutionary notions of early Europeans as brute scavengers, not "highly skilled craftsmen." Archaeology magazine reported, "They suggest that early man was able to hunt, and was not just a scavenger."4 The earliest direct or indirect evidence of tools shows every indication of human-like expertise in manufacture. For example, people butchered animals in Africa long before these German spears were used.5 Ancients ground grain and decorated baskets.6 And the earliest religious temple was of the highest quality, currently under excavation in Turkey.7 If human evolution were true, one would expect to find that the earliest ape-like humans produced clumsy efforts, not the refined tools and artifacts known around the world. Therefore, it comes as no surprise to Bible believers that early human artifacts such as well-formed throwing spears show that ancient humans were fully human.8 References Thieme, H. 1997.

Although evolutionists overestimated the ages of these artifacts due to uniformitarian assumptions, these spears could probably be some of the earliest human artifacts. Since they were found in coal deposits associated with the Ice Age, and since people required some time to migrate from Babylon to modern Germany, this places these artifacts relatively soon after the Flood, which is roughly dated to 2,500 B.C. by standard Bible chronology.

We (U of M EWB chapter) built an awesome marble machine contraption to show how fair trade benefits farmers. The glasses on the bottom collect the marbles which represent the amount of money that each stakeholder gets (retailer, roaster, exporter, middle man, and finally... farmer). This machine shows the distribution using stats from Oxfam for NON fair trade coffee. We didn't have time to build the FAIR trade machine, so we just filled up another set of glasses with the correct amount of marbles for the FAIR trade case. Enjoy! Best Practices: 1) give the marbles to kids! This was Alex's great idea and it really drew the kids and the families in. 2) challenge people to figure out where the next marble will go which appeals to the intellectuals and gets many people hooked! They also feel more invested and want to understand why you built it. A video from the Engineers Without Borders Chapter of University of Manitoba!

http://goldstocktrades.com/blog Even though the precious metal and junior mining sector have been in decline for the past few years, there have been a few exceptions due to the high quality of both the management team and the asset. One of the areas of strength has been in a relatively unknown metal known as niobium. What is niobium and why is it so important? Niobium is critical for high strength low weight steel that is required in the automobile, infrastructure and aviation industries. Niobium prices have increased steadily over the past 40 years, but may move higher at a faster rate as niobium demand is increasing due to its ability to reduce consumption of energy. A little niobium decreases the weight and increases fuel efficiency. One of the junior niobium miners, Niocorp (NB.V or NIOBF) has been one of the best performers on the TSX Venture over the past year. The main catalyst was attracting top notch CEO Mark Smith who brought Molycorp's (MCP) Mountain Pass Rare Earth Deposit into production. Mark has decades of experience of bringing mines into production. Mark put his money where his mouth is and bought a large position over the past year in Niocorp which is developing North America's largest and highest grade undeveloped niobium deposit near Elk Creek, Nebraska. Mark has put together a quality team to advance the project towards a Bankable Feasibility Study. Niocorp is currently drilling a 3 stage program to move the resource from inferred to measured and indicated. The recent drilling program has been a huge success hitting some of the highest grade assays ever recorded at the project. Remember over 53,000 meters have been drilled on the property to date, but since the new management team has come on board the assays have been impressive. Major players should begin noticing the 3-4% grade material. As Mark Smith, CEO of Niocorp said in a recent news release, "…these latest results show the extensive continuity of material in excess of 1 per cent grade, furthering our commitment to confirming this deposit as truly world class in grade and size." It appears the grades are higher at depth where the deposit remains open. In addition, there are additional targets to the southeast and northwest of the deposit. Concurrently, a major metallurgical program is underway at two well known research labs at SGS Canada and Hazen. SRK Consulting has already initiated preliminary work on the feasibility study. In conclusion, Niobium demand has been increasing for the past 40 years and should accelerate as demand is increasing for high strength low weight steel. Niocorp could be one of the largest suppliers of niobium in North America and take advantage of the increased consumption of niobium. Recent results both with the drill and on the metallurgy could attract significant strategic financial partners on this project in the coming months. Mr. Smith is well recognized in the mining community, having recently served as CEO and Director of Molycorp, Inc., where he was instrumentally involved in taking that from a private company to a publicly traded producing mine. Prior to that, Mr. Smith was the President and Chief Executive Officer of Chevron Mining Inc. and managed the real estate, remediation, mining and carbon divisions of Unocal Corporation for over 22 years. During his tenure with Chevron Mining Inc., Mr. Smith also served as a Director of Companhia Brasileira de Metalurgia e Mineração (CBMM), part of the Moreira Salles Group, a private company that currently produces approximately 85% of the world supply of Niobium. Mr. Smith has a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering from Colorado State University and a Juris Doctor cum laude from Western State University, College of Law. He currently sits on the Board of Avanti Mining Inc. Disclosure: I own Niocorp and they are a website sponsor.

For the first time in school history, the University of Wisconsin - Platteville Steel Bridge team attended the National Student Steel Bridge Competition (NSSBC), which was held at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. The team ended up making quite a splash, winning 1st place in two categories and placing in the top half in 5 of the 7 categories, including an 11th place finish out of 48 attending schools. Not bad for the first-timers from the smaller school in the Driftless Area. This video includes pictures of the trip to Utah and the competition, as well as the full bridge build and snippets of the bridge loading. Congrats to the hard-working seniors on the team, and good luck in the future to the UW-Platteville Steel Bridge team. The song in the video is Pump Up The Jam by Technotronic. I do not own the song and am not making any money off this video.

The economy of northwestern Ontario and the history of Cook Engineering have always been intertwined. As grain elevators on Thunder Bay's waterfront have been abandoned and demolished, and the struggles of the forestry industry have closed one mill after another, this dynamic 130-employee engineering and architecture firm has always found new opportunities and been on the leading edge of change. Established in 1962 as V.B. Cook Co. Ltd., the company's growth has mirrored the progress of the grain, pulp and paper, and transportation sectors of this city on the north shore of Lake Superior. With a foundation of expertise in heavy industry and public infrastructure. Cook has always been flexible and insightful enough to be able to shift gears and make bold choices in diversifying into growth areas, including the region's emerging biomass economy. That kind of ambition and a huge Rolodex of clients as Northern Ontario's largest independent multi-disciplinary engineering company was attractive to Genivar Income Fund, a major Canadian consulting firm who acquired Cook earlier this year. As the former president of Cook and now Genivar's director of operations for northwestern Ontario, Dave Knutson has witnessed the company's evolution first-hand since 1987. "When I joined, we were just finishing off the last significant grain-handling project in Thunder Bay." While they have always maintained a strong competitive edge in pulp and paper projects, bridge design and highway work, Cook is diversifying with a slate of green energy projects. Their expertise in designing and building grain elevators has translated into erecting concrete headframes and hoists for the potash mining industry in Saskatchewan. The automation experience gained from pulp and paper work is now in use in mines across Canada. Their familiarity with steam turbines in forestry mills lends itself to designing biomass boilers and energy-efficient co-generation plants. The quality of work and the relationship they've built with clients over the decades has meant retrofits and expansions to projects they carried out as long as 30 years ago. In recent years, Cook has developed a deep appreciation and understanding of Aboriginal people through the formation of its First Nations Business Development Group. The firm prides itself in providing culturally sensitive and personalized services in architectural, environmental, engineering and development work for First Nation clients. They have worked on a diverse range of projects with health clinics, day care centres, schools, business centres, water treatment plants and remote diesel generating stations. In some cases, it's meant improving lives by repairing and rebuilding entire blocks of mould-infested homes in First Nation communities. But having multi-faceted abilities is nothing without attracting and retaining skilled and talented employees. Cook Engineering has developed a first-class reputation as an employer that is committed to its staff. They have fostered an environment that is respectful of people's talent, experiences and input. "A new employee once made the comment that she really enjoyed working for us because it was the first place she worked where if she admitted she didn't know something, it wasn't her last day at work." With an industry-competitive remuneration and benefits package, the company takes pride in their low attrition rate by showing respect for employees at all levels. Through financial assistance from the company, staff are encouraged to pursue professional development options to help with cross-training and qualification in multiple fields and tasks. "We've tried to make sure our employees are as flexible in their skills as they can be," said Knutson. "We don't have a lot of turnover, and there's a core group that has been here for a long time and are enthusiastic about what they're doing." The company has also shown a willingness to invest in research and development projects that are initiated by staff. "We're not shy to encourage a little exploration and expansion of knowledge," said Knutson. Whenever employees dive into philantrophic and charitable endeavors, Cook management is not afraid to pitch in with their support of Thunder Bay Regional Health Science Centre, George Jeffrey Children's Centre, Shelter House, Lakehead University and Confederation College. The company has stepped up to the plate in matching employee fundraising efforts for earthquake relief in Haiti. Staff have also volunteered their weekend in packing -- and paying for -- a shipping container loaded with used hospital equipment destined for Cuba.
