where your career is headed
HVAC technicians are needed in Canada to meet the demand to install and maintain equipment. As new, more energy efficient products are designed, HVAC technicians are needed to install and test these systems.
With the right training and experience, HVAC technicians can aspire to other jobs in the mechanical engineering field such as HVAC engineer, mechanical drafter and mechanical engineer. You can also move into supervisory and management positions.
Another option to consider is self-employment. Some HVAC technicians find they can increase their salary and enjoy more freedom and flexibility by becoming an independent HVAC contractor.
