Advisory On Canada

Canada’s robust economy offers good job opportunities to skilled workers and
professionals from the Philippines and other countries through the permanent and
temporary migration schemes. The Provinces in Canada have adopted the Provincial
Nominee Program to facilitate the entry of immigrants to its labor force.
The Human Resources and Social Development Canada has reported that 1.9 million
new jobs will be created over the next decade (2006 – 2015) particularly in the Western
provinces of Canada such as Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

The general public is advised further that Canadian laws and regulations in these
provinces prohibit the charging of recruitment and placement fee from workers seeking
employment in Manitoba, British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Alberta provinces of
Canada or from workers under the Pilot Project of the Canadian Government regardless
of the province of destination in Canada.
The Pilot Project of the Government of Canada for the hiring of foreign workers in
occupations usually require a high school diploma or a maximum of 2 years of jobspecific
training (level C and D). The prevailing policy requires the Canadian employers
to cover all recruitment costs related to the hiring of the foreign workers under the project.
The POEA has issued Memorandum Circular No.03 (series of 2007) on the “noplacement
fee” policy for Canada for this purpose.
