Wow Eddy, Canada's a bit out of my area of expertise...I can tell you that I know a couple of really good drywallers here in Minnesnowta who bid their jobs @ no more than $25/hr (US--You'd have to deal with the exchange rate  ;D )...I dunno how they survive at that price, but they sure do nice work--Nice enough that I sub out all my drywall labor to them...

Wish I could be more helpful...

Standard drywall finishing ( 8 ft. ceilings with no fancy hand work ) bids out at 45 - 50 cents per drywall Sq. Ft. in this area ( southeast US )
