If it is comparable to a Level II NDT cert like here in the US approximately you would be looking at around $35-38/Hr USD, if it is comparable to the AWS CWI roughly $38-40/Hr USD. These are some what rough estimates for the structural realm, the highest I would say to expect would be mid $40's.

But other factors come in to play such as if pay will be at a day rate (if so how many hours is a "day" considered) perdiem included or not, ( a lot of companies will offer a lower hourly rate but a fairly high perdiem to offset, some offer pretty decent hourly and a shit perdiem) is mileage included if so from where to where and at what rate.
Yes, CWB Level 2 is the equivalent to AWS CWI. Your rates seem in line with other information that I have received ( $49.00 - $52.00 / hr CAD), with some remote work far exceeding that. I am trying to gather as much information on wages as I can, as I am entering contract negotiations with my current employer.
I appreciate your time and help.
