So /out/, I've just spent the last year working as a laborer in rural construction and have come to the conclusion that I'd rather off myself then work a desk job no matter how much money it made me. What kind of trades/skilled labor positions should I look into if I want to work outside with my hands?

I live in eastern Ontario

I landscape and live it. Mind you I live in BC so I can work pretty much all year. Well we take a couple weeks off around Christmas and January is really weather dependent. Personally I see the little bit of time off as a perk though

Recruitment professional here.

In my experience, millwright jobs are decent in terms of skilled trades. The outdoors kind of industrial millwrights aren't in demand right now though, with things in Alberta the way they are.

You already have construction experience though, so I suggest you become a construction millwright, the payrate is roughly 25-40/hr depending on experience and the contract. If you are gonna do it, try to become a dual ticket millwright/industrial electrician.

In the winter time you can get a job as a lift mechanic or snowmaker. The more remote resorts will house and feed you for the season so you don't have to commute.

If you decide to go the hands on labor route (which I myself prefer) have a plan to start your own business or move up quickly at your company. The work will wear you down so having a position or job you can fall back on will give you a few more years to stay active. Ive seen men in their 80s still working as laborers
