A lot of things are different in Canada from the US, but I wonder if any jobs on this list match up with the Highest Paid Trade School Jobs in America. I can imagine that Canada has similar needs when it comes to the workforce as in the US, but the pay is obviously different. If you’re terrified of the current political climate and you want some kind of escape, you could potentially consider these careers in a new place where you’ll be less affected (in theory).

In order to find the highest paid trades, we looked online and found some sources that are credible. We primarily looked at Huffington Post, Canadian Business, and Trade Schools CA. From there, we took the jobs that were on all three lists and ranked them according to the average median salary, which we got from Canadian Business. Obviously, the jobs that pay the most are at the top of the list. All of the jobs on this list are those that you can get by vocational courses and a trade school education.

Without any further delay, let’s check out the highest paying trades in Canada.
