UK / CAN Equivalent Rates


Recommended Posts

Hello all,


after some local advice / knowledge from those who may be able to help.


Getting ready to transition to a move to Canada.


A competitive day rate for a self employed climber in the U.K. varies from £200 - £250 (Generally speaking and depending on kit owned/used). Roughly £25 - 30 p/h.


Does anyone know what the equivalent of this is, in Canada. On a self employed and PAYE basis. (Appreciate different factors like own ppe, climbing kit, saws and cost of living).


Thanks in advance.

Canada is a very big country, where are you heading? 

Self employed climbers are not so common here, and its a much more involved process to be one. 

The trees and the type of work is also quite different. It takes awhile to become productive, even if you are the bollocks at home.

Thanks for the response. Vancouver/Victoria. Appreciate the trees and the style of work is different. Presenting different challenges that you’d face in the U.K. 


Ah okay, didn’t realise self employed route for climbers wasn’t that common over there!
