Chad Sullivan, of Sydney, looks for scaffolding jobs in western Canada from a computer at the YMCA Career & Employment Resource Centre in Sydney, February 10, 2015. Sullivan says he finished a scaffolding course in November and has been unable to find related work since. He is currently working at a call centre in Cape Breton. The downturn in the oil patch is now causing turmoil in an island economy that has grown dependent on workers commuting more than 3,000 kilometers west. Cape Breton, an 10,000 square-kilometer island linked to the northern Nova Scotia mainland by a mile-long causeway, has turned from an industrial powerhouse fueled by now-closed coal mines and steel mills into an exporter of labor. With manufacturing jobs scarce, the lure of the oil sands of northern Alberta, where steady work and big paychecks from the projects clustered around the city of Fort McMurray were on offer, was difficult to resist.
