To Qatar from Vancouver

I'm expecting a formal DEC job offer pretty quick from Qatar. Before I make the final leap, a few questions:

Staff Travel - I live on the West Coast of Canada. I assume there is some decent interline arrangements to get home (or at least past Montreal). Is Air Canada an option? Or do you have to go via the States? When does my family get staff travel?

Per Diems - Are they decent? Do they adequately cover your expenses?

Salary - I've checked the salary, and it seems reasonable. Obviously, you'd have to wait a year to get into training, but is the training department a worthwhile way to boost your income?

Housing - What are the odds that you'll get company housing versus a housing allowance? I understand they may not have enough housing to accommodate the huge increase in hiring.

Thanks for any input!
