I'm from Edmonton Alberta. I have operated a welding rig for 12 years and as far as I can tell there is no standard rate. I have heard of rates any where between $65 to $140/hr depending on location (how far north) and the amount of skill required. Demand at the time usually determines the rates, 2005/2006 were great years for rig welders here, 2007 not so good. In Edmonton now, rates seem to be around 85 for "B" welders and 70 for journeyman.

I agree, here in Michigan I've seen many rates, the highest was for tig welding Stainless steel/aluminum That was $15 per inch, but tig is always a little more expensive.
