Canada has been one of the best countries where Filipinos love to seek greener pasture plus citizens of Canada love Filipinos too. Many find it easier to get working visas in Canada than getting one from other countries like the US, Australia, UK, Japan and other rich countries. Why is that? Simply because in Canada, there are no TNTs (tago-ng-tago in Pinoy slang). Canada is a well disciplined country. It loves its immigrant workers as much as it loves its citizens.

How to get a job in Canada easily and successfully?

One of the great tips to get a job in Canada for Filipinos via direct hiring is to choose the jobs classified under the skilled and low-skilled jobs. Why? Because these jobs are usually hiring and have the most available vacancies. Canada hires foreign workers if and only if they find no citizens in Canada to fill those jobs. If you heard of LMO (Labor Market Opinion) – that’s one of the requirements before an employer can hire foreign workers there. No wonder why many professional workers in the Philippines such as doctors and others leave their jobs here and apply for positions related to their career and experience. Anyway, higher salaries and compensation awaits anyone who will work abroad like Canada. There are also professional positions hiring like CPA, teachers etc although majority of Filipinos apply for the skilled and Canada jobs with LMO.

UPDATE: LMO is now termed as LMIA (Labour Market Impact Assessment). Citizenship and Immigration Canada has announced last June 2014 about a big change in their Temporary Foreign Worker Program.  Read the article below and then go back here.

How to get LMIA in Canada – Requirements and Procedure

Online employer

First thing you would do is find an employer in Canada. Some employers post their jobs vacancies online. Remember to apply only to trusted job websites like the following listed below. Note that these websites are approved and recommended by the Immigration of Canada.

Employer agent in the Philippines for Direct Hiring

If you have a friend or relative in Canada, they could refer you for employers provided you are qualified for the position they are hiring. The more you find employers, the more chance you got of getting hired.

You can also apply to some people who conduct direct hiring in the Philippines. These people usually schedule some orientations about their job offers in Canada. These agents are affiliated with Canadian employers who directly hire OFWs. They do the same steps as local agencies do to their applicants. The good thing about them is there’s not much competition from the number of applicants than to other agencies. They will also assist you in processing your documents for the application at the Canadian embassy.

LMO and Employment Permits Processing in Canada

Once you found an employer, good thing for you because they will process the LMO and some documents needed for your employment in Canada. If your papers are ready, you can then apply for your working visa at the Embassy of Canada in Manila (currently at the RCBC Plaza, Makati) See the requirements for working visa application in Canada for Filipinos. You may also need your SSS Employee Static Information as supporting document for your visa approval.

Visa Application at the Embassy of Canada in the Philippines

Good thing about applying for a visa and work permit in Canada is that you may not need a personal interview at the embassy if your papers are all complete and consistent, your visa will be delivered to you so soon. You can apply online or via Call Center. Make sure you personally prepared all your papers and documents for the complete requirements before processing them for application online or call center. You may need to attend an interview if the consul contacted you for one. If they didn’t, then you’re lucky. The Canadian Embassy address is listed below.

Levels 6-8, Tower 2
RCBC Plaza
6819 Ayala Avenue
Makati City 1200

POEA Registration as Name Hire

After you had your visa approved, you will then have to register yourself at the POEA for Name Hire / Direct Hire to be an official OFW. You will have PDOS (Pre-departure Orientation Seminar) and process your OWWA, SSS, Pagibig, Philhealthpapers too. Once you’re done, they will give you your Exit Clearance which you will use at your departure at the airport when you leave the Philippines and fly to Canada.

Take note that POEA Name Hire has a Direct Hiring limit policy of 10 for every employer.

Now that you know the tips and the procedure for direct hiring in Canada, are you ready to apply? Gather your guts and make your dreams come true. Find an employer now and let that passport have visa stamped :)
