    Yes and Yes more will come, O&G service sector. At least I haven't been laid off. I'd prefer if they could wait until July for that.

    No and no. But I work for the Alberta gov, they will try to cut wages before they do layoffs, they'd rather people quit then payout any severance.

    In fact, some work/contracts just came through today. I'll easily be busy until August/September now. It won't be balls to the walls, but I have work, and some considerable overtime from working up north.

    Yes, and Potentially. I work for a servicing company... Mainly our field staff has been affected, which doesn't bode well for me if the level of activity increases quickly, I'll have to dust off the old Dunlops and get back to supervising.

    No and we've been told none coming. E&P, small to mid sized. Unique situation I'm not elaborating on though.

    If oil's at $50 Jan 1 2016, make no mistake, expect layoffs everywhere, and not just O&G.

    Potentially? That's optimistic.

    No, and No.

    I am in management with a telco. Our corp cards are being scrutinized a bit more, and asked to reduce spending, but we are already understaffed in my area, they can't get rid of anyone.

    Interestingly Calgary's unemployment rate went down from dec-jan.

    Even though the labour force grew, both the participation and employment rate went up.

    Yes and if this oil price persists another six months then likely more to come. Large O&G producer.

    I am also with a telco and we've laid off 1600 with more to come.
    I bet most of you can guess which telco

    yeah, but they were not "laid off" they were offered relocation packages I thought. I was reading they were offered $7500 in moving expenses to move to one of the other cities...

    I know of a few that are just starting to be impacted right now... it isn't dramatic, just hiring freezes at the moment, but pressure to lower costs is being placed on them by producers.
