Thousands of jobs are waiting for Filipino workers in Canada. Among the jobs up for grabs are for engineers, architects, teachers, and healthcare professionals.
Filipinos can now land a job in Canada as Saskatchewan has opened 14,000 job opportunities in the province.
Applicants can go to saskjobs.ca to view the entire lists of occupations open for hiring.
DOLE said the job opportunities are not only for Filipinos because it is also open to all other workers of different nationalities.
According to Nicon Fameronag of the Department of Labor and Employment., Filipino workers are mostly preferred by Canadian employers.
The DOLE said accredited agencies will be tasked to screen applicants for the jobs.
The DOLE reiterated its warning to applicants to not fall prey to illegal recruiters. Instead, they should directly get in touch with the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) at telephone numbers 722-1144 and 722-1155.
Earlier this month, DOLE signed a Memorandum of Agreement with Saskatchewan for the protection of Filipino workers and to implement streamlined, efficient and ethical recruitment practices in human resource between the Philippines and the Canadian province.
