Food & Accommodation
Read about the ins and outs of food stipends and accommodation provided by the ABMI during the summer monitoring season for field technologists.
Shared accommodation is provided at each central base and is available for the duration of the field season (including days off). In the past, accommodations have been provided at Grande Prairie College and Lac La Biche/St. Paul Portage College residences. Rooms are fully furnished, and the ABMI provides a basic kitchen set for each house. Bedding is not provided so technologists are advised to bring their own. All training will be conducted at this central base and technicians will meet there upon commencement and completion of their field shifts. Accommodation and transportation are provided when sites cannot be reached from the central base and can include holiday trailers, hotels, tenting, and industry camps.
The ABMI covers an equitable portion of food expenses while on shift; however, technologists are expected to prepare their own meals.
