Is building masonry stoves and RMH a viable career path?

I'm considering going to college (in Canada, my home and native land) for masonry on the grounds that I would be able to build stoves as a career.

Is there enough of a demand?

Are there adequate teachers or might I need to go to Europe?

Would going to masonry school be necessary?

Anything I should be considering?

Thanks in advance!

Will you be training yourself to do other masonry, or only RMH? I know a shop teacher in a public school who is also a trained mason. On evenings and weekends, he has more projects than he can handle. Fireplaces, chimneys, retaining walls, and he also does tilework.

I'm thinking of getting a red seal ticket in Canada as a mason.
