Direct Hiring Jobs in Canada for Filipinos – How to get a job in Canada Successfully?

How to get a job in Canada via direct hiring process? It’s so simple plus you’ll get approved easily than getting a job in the USA and other wealthy countries. The steps, procedures and requirements are discussed in this page so read on…Work in Canada this 2014!

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.

OFW Jobs Hiring in Canada 2014

Usual jobs for Filipinos in Canada are in the following area:

  • Nursing – Filipino nurses are everywhere in Canada, if you’re RN you’d definitely get a job here
  • Caregiver jobs – lots of Filipinos find caregiving jobs via direct hiring too as long as they have the TESDA certificate
  • Hotel and restaurant jobs – such as housekeeping staff, bartenders, waiter or waitresses, fast food crew, restaurant managers, cashiers and the like.
  • Teaching
  • Construction
  • Engineering
  • Accounting – CPAs, auditors
  • Information Technology
  • Architecture

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.

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.

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, Philhealth papers 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 :)

    Good day! I’ve heard about that SSS Contribution, I would like to ask if it is a must to have SSS Contribution to apply for a Canadian Visa? My husband worked in Canada and is now returning home. Whne he went back home last year, there’s no SSS requirement yet. I was wandering, since he will be waiting for his new LMO from his new employer here in the Philippines, but this time under an agency (it was direct hire in his previous) will there be a conflict with the embassy if he doesn’t have SSS contribution? My husband is a bit scared it might have a conflict with his application. Thank you and I hope you can help us. More power! God bless.

          ms fehl naselect po ako ng employer and nag sign ng contract.ask ko lng kung may descrepancy ung certificate of employment ko at information sa static info ko would ground for visa refusal.n

  2. says

    Hi there! The SSS contribution is not really specifically listed as one of the requirements in visa application although nowadays it is being requested…perhaps to those applicants whose application needs more supporting papers. In my opinion, they are requesting it to see the status of the applicant – if he’s employed or self employed.

    I think you must ask an advice from the agency since your husband’s employment is now under them. If you ask me, you have nothing to worry about because your husband was a former OFW in Canada already. Meaning, all he needs now is to relax and submit what is being asked. :) In the mean time, you can go to the SSS and pay his contributions as an OFW. That way if the embassy request his SSS employee static information, you can just get it online.

    SSS is important to retirement. If you are a member of the SSS or your husband, make sure you continuously pay your contributions (with or without an agency’s advice) to be entitled for retirement benefits in the future. Thank you for dropping by and God bless!

      hi Ms. Fehl. Good Day. I’m a Line Cook in Red Lobster Qatar which franchise by Middle East base company from Canada base company. And I wan to work at Canada in same resto. Is that possible for me getting job there. Thank you and hope to from you soon. More power and God bless

      • says

        Of course it’s possible :) Just ask your manager or Head HR in Red Lobster for any line cook position in Canada. If there is a vacant or position related to your current job, it’s will be easier for you since you will apply to the same company and you have same experience too. You may also contact the office in Canada to confirm any position, that’s better if you ask me. :) God bless you too.

            Mam tanong ko lang na submit na ung medical ko sa canadian embassy last jan25 la pa rin po reply embassy ung ibang kasama ko mag pdos na ako wala pa may problema kay? Thank you po and godbless

          • says

            Wait patiently for the embassy’s response about your medical. They usually send a mail regarding the status of your application. Are you really sure your medical was forwarded to the embassy already? If not, contact your medical center and confirm if the results are already sent to the Canadian Embassy. If they sent them already, all you have to do is wait for a result from the embassy.

          • says

            Anybody with enough and real requirements can apply for working visa. If you will be applying for a Canada job FROM UK, make sure you are a citizen of UK or a permanent resident otherwise you can just go back to the Philippines and apply here.

        hi just want to ask if how long it will take to process my papers if Im going to work in canada say for example I have my friend in canada and she found an employer for me..

        • says

          If you have the LMO already, the employment contract and the necessary requirements, you can apply at the embassy. From my sister’s experience, once her papers are in (at the embassy) after 15 days she received a letter via Air21 confirming about her application and a confirmation that they received her documents. After another 2 weeks, she received another letter containing forms for her medical examination so she did the medical test to the Accredited Clinic. The said clinic will be the one who will forward the result to the embassy. After few more weeks, she was called for an interview and additional documents so she attended on the date assigned. My sister was nervous and so were her co-appliacants. Fortunately, they felt the interview was positive :) They received their visa after two more weeks (if I’m right)

    I am interested in working at Canada, I am a fresh graduate with no experience. Am i qualified to apply? Thanks!

      I think it depends on what you’re applying. If you had OJTs and some related job experience even if you’re fresh graduate, it will help more of getting accepted.

  8. angel says

    hello i am currently working now in Kuwait as teacher in English School and I am planning to apply in Canada,do u think i can easily get a teaching job there or should I consider applying other skilled positions? I have also experience on sales associate and as cashier but I have more experience in teaching and I am a licensed teacher.So what can you suggest? And do you an agency that is based here in Kuwait just asking maybe you know I just started this plan so I am just starting to gather ideas.
    Thank you very much.

    • says

      Why not apply as a teacher? You are a professional teacher and the salary is tripled compared to low-skilled. :) Start looking for hiring at those trusted websites mentioned in the article.

      • Dave says

        As a Canadian, I must say a few things about teaching jobs in Canada. I have 2 family members who are teachers there, both are Canadians and both had to wait over 5 years for full-time jobs. During those 5 or 6 years, they worked 1 day a week substituting for sick teachers, maybe 2 or 3 days a week if they were lucky. A fulltime elementary teacher earns approximately $75,000/year, these high paying jobs are held for 25-35 years before retirement. New teachers not only need to fall in line for 5-6 years, they must also make good impressions to the school superintendants and school board. New teachers must also balance those good immpressions with the union and fellow teaching staff who constantly quarrel with the government and school boards. In other words… a teaching job requires you to be a diplomat between coworkers and government firstly… teaching quality is unfortunately secondary.

        Unless you have a working spouse/family member to pay the bills and support you during these 5-6 years, it may be better to find low skilled employment and only submit your degrees and diplomas as extras. Once you have work in Canada, then pursue the teaching career. Obviously, full command of English is nessisary but if you also speak and correspond in French, it may push you forward faster. Canada is a bi-lingual country, i.e. English/French. It may also speed up your full-time teaching career if you start out in small towns before moving to big cities… Sorry if this dicouraged you, I only want to inform you.

        • says

          Hi Dave :) Thank you so much for sharing teaching experience and jobs in Canada. Teaching is one of the most precious professions in the world. I salute all teachers because it’s a very tough job especially if you are a full time mother and housewife. I think if a Filipino got a teaching job in Canada, that would be a great blessing knowing it is not so easy to get a position. My Aunt is a teacher in the USA and she’s been working there for almost 5 years now and was able to get her family to live with her. She has two children and life there is just as good as her life here in the Philippines because her husband is not working in the US. Well he can’t work ’cause she’s the only one who has work permit. I heard from her that she may qualify for a pension of maybe 700 USD/month if she goes back to the Philippines and that money is more than enough if you are living in the Philippines. I wonder how long would a teacher in Canada be granted a pension benefit like that of the US? Must be so awesome :)

          Filipinos are majority fluent in English. Knowing French would be a plus. :) Thank you for sharing some helpful information here. God bless! :)

    Hello.. May I know of any agency or canadian employer offering direct hiring for nurses like me? please help.. I will be 2 years of being a nurse this march.. Thank you!!

    • says

      If you are in Facebook, there are lots of agencies hiring nurses for Canada, Australia and United Kingdom. Search it on fb nurses for Canada or Australia

    • Melvie says

      Hi sarah! I’ve seen advertisements online regarding sa mga job offers for nurses, but sometimes those jobs are not really like “nursing jobs” if you know what I mean. Most of the time, they end up working as a Nanny or a Caregiver. Wala namang masama doon, its just that sometimes it is misleading and hindi sinasabi agad na its like that though nasa field pa naman natin ang child care and elderly care. As an internationally educated nurse, you need to undergo assessment and exam muna dito sa Canada. Although you can apply in the skilled worker but they will consider your year of experience. I’ve met a nurse from Cebu sa facebook, magkasabay kami halos dumating dito sa Canada. She has experience, may masters pa and she’s USRN as well. But the thing is, Canada has their own regulations. So she still need to undergo assessment. I’m a nurse too, and eto still on the process of getting my license here. It’s not that easy kasi you need patient, time and money. Hindi naman sa dinedescourage kita, im just sharing my experience.I’ll post a links which will help you understand more on the process of getting licensed here.. And keep checking the websites ng mga regulating body each province kasi they keep on changing the rules.every year yata may bago..

      lots of informations regarding nursing here in Canada. Hope it helps :)

      “Filipino Nurses are the best nurse in the world” according to a Russian Doctor that I’ve talked to. ;)

    Hi Good evening!.I’m Krista Ezra 26 years old, from the Philippines. I had a 5 years worked experienced from Singapore as a waitress. please kindly help me, how can I apply work in Canada? or any agency that I can visit to give me some more information. thanks

  11. says

    hi Ms. Fehl, may i ask, is it possible to apply directly in Canada without any agency or employer here in Philippines?. cause i’m kinda confuse., and do you know how to know if that agency in Canada were legal? thanks! :))

    • says

      Yes, it’s called direct hiring. If you have an employer already in Canada who wants to hire you, they must first process your permits in Canada and some papers like LMO. They can also ask assistance in POLO in Canada. Once the papers there are settled, you need to apply at the Embassy of Canada in Makati for your working visa. The requirements for the visa are listed on their official website, and also the steps… If your visa was approved, you need to register then at the POEA as Name Hire to be an official OFW and have your PDOS and exit clearance which you will use when you leave the country. Have a sweet day! :)

      • says

        thank you for your that infor ms. Fehl, i’m a fresh graduate, i’m wondering if they are accepting a fresh graduate like me?.. coz i really wanna work in Canada :D

I really dont know when to start applying just i saw in your ads about the possible way to go to canada. Is it really possible that we can locate employer in the given site?thank you so much and godbless

    • says

      Hi Wilson :) Yup you will have more chance if you apply both online and in person. Find the job relevant to your experience and education and upload your resume to the sites like monster, workopolis and jobbank. Also apply personally to agencies accredited by POEA. Lots are in Malate or Makati. I suggest, you check your prospects first and list them so that you can go to all of them in a day. Also prepare lots of resume and copies of your credentials so you can submit and apply to many agencies as you like.

    Hi! Good day! Would you mind if you can help me to find an employeer in Canada. I just want to help my son for his job application as a Registered Nurse. I’m looking forward to hear from you soon. Thank you.

    • says

      Good morning. :) You can find an employer at the job sites I listed in the article or to workabroad.ph. When you go to workabroad website just choose Canada as the country and you’ll find the available hiring agencies for Registered Nurses. I recommend he apply to each personally and bring his resume and credentials. Bring many copies and apply to other agencies. Also if your son has already 2 years or more experience being an RN, I think he will be hired easily. If you know a friend or a relative in Canada, they can also refer your son to RN jobs. If his visa was approved, he can register at POEA as on official OFW :) Good luck and more power!

    Hi miss fehl, I just wanna know if it’s possible that I could apply as a Caregiver in Canada even if I didn’t pass the NLE? or if I’m a Registered Nurse here in the Philippines and aiming for a Caregiver job/position what will be the requirements? Do i still need to obtain or undergo TESDA for the supporting documents, even I finished Nursing? Thank You and Godbless!

    • says

      If you are a Licensed Registered Nurse with at least one year of full-time paid employment, including at least six months of continuous employment with one employer, you are considered for the job even without a Caregiver Training from TESDA. Your experience must be within 3 years before you submit your application of work permit.

  19. Rodg says

    Hi.

    I just want to ask something. I aso want to work in canada. As of now Im working as Payable Analyst in BPO Company here in Makati while taking my training of ROOM ATTENDANT. Is it possible to to apply directly to employer or its much better if I will apply in agency? also, I will have my 300hrs OJT next month while working at night, is it enough experience to qualify to work in canada?

    Thanks

    • says

      Hello Rodg! You may apply directly to employers and apply at local agencies too. Whoever replies first then reply to their interest. Room Attendant are always hiring in Canada especially hotels. There are also lots of agencies here that look for room attendants, bellboys, housekeeping staff and receptionists. Having an OJT is good too but working in a hotel in the Philippines adds more chance of getting hired. I heard many OFWs who work abroad as room attendant get so much from tips. Wow that is awesome! :) If you will look at agencies in the Philippines, just walk along UN Ave, Pedro Gil, Taft and Malate you’ll find lots of agencies hiring for Canada there.

      • Rodg says

        Thanks Fehl for that info…

        hhhmmm…. do you know any agency located on you said location who hires Room Attendant? Do you have any friend working in hotels in canada who can refer me directly as Room attendant or admin staff or any job?

        Thanks.

  23. cindy says

    Hi Ms. Fehl, I applied caregiver in Canada and been elderly caregiver in Israel for 6 years. I did not keep my records except letter from my other employers and my first contract only and my old passports. I submitted the documents via air21. I followed the instructions in the website. Secondly, I had wrong entry in the application and I faxed a letter addressed to the Embasy of Manila. I dont know if they receive it. What makes me so nervous is that my documents from my former employers are not than consistent. I called my last employer if she could send a letter of confirmation of working with them for 3 years untl her mother died that ends my visa. The embassy might ask it. I am really nervous for the interview and asking additional documents I might dont have it with me.

  24. Ms. L says

    Hi miss Fehl. Im a registered Nurse with just a volunteer experience in the hospital and another 6 months contract in DOH at rural health Unit. Tinatangap po ba ng canada kahit volunteer experience lang? qualified po ba ako kahit caregiver dun? Slamat po. :D

    Hi miss Felh. good day po. RN po ako dito sa Pinas. Meron po akong 6 months Volunteer experience sa hospital at 6 months naman pong contract sa DOH (RNHeals) na assign sa mga center. Qualified po ba ako sa canada kahit caregiver? Thank you po!

    • Fehl says

      Like I said earlier, if you are already a Registered Nurse you may qualify even if you won’t take a caregiver training anymore as long as you have related and enough experience. Thank you and God bless :)

    Hi! Mam I wanna apply as a fish plant operator in Canada . the agency required 3years experience. I have a wide knowledge in various fishes and has strong ability in fish cutting and cleaning because I’ve been a fish vendor / dealer from 1996-2007 in our province.. Apparently i cannot provide documents needed .I just still have the mayors permit of 2003 and 2004. I lost some other permits an I dont have a fish cutting and cleaning certificate, I just learned it through co vendors and just looking to my parents on how they clean, cut and fillet fish. Now am currently working as a call center agent for more than one year . i just finish one semester of my college without failed grades.Will I have the chance to be hired and get canadian working visa as fish plant operator?

      • Pierre says

        Hi,! Mam thank you for your response. I just have follow questions , what If i ask for a copy of my records in our province would it be a great steps? Do you think mam having five years experience with employment certificate for the position am applying is enough already even without training certificate . I have also call center experience for almost 4 years in international American base company here in manila. I’ m jobless now for almost 3 months because am seeking for abroad job. These are my basic and key information.. Your reply mam will be appreciated again.. Thanks

        • Pierre says

          Would I have also a chance even I just attained one sem of my college, but I have wide and variety of experiences, four years experience in call centerand more than five years as fish store supervisor

          • says

            It depends on the job you are applying. If it’s fish store staff, your 5 years experience could support your eligibility and application and you may not need a college degree is you are applying in that position although you may need a training certificate from TESDA. Check the requirements by asking your employer about that position. Many jobs have specific and different requirements

    hi fehl…how are you? i just want to ask about applaying to canada, it is possible i could apply there as a waitress coz im graduated 2 years hrm and i have experience only 1 yeAR coz mostly some hotel they are hiring with 2 years experience….hope you please answer my question thanks in advAnce GOD BLESS..

    • says

      If you have 1 year experience as a waitress and you are applying the same in Canada, that experience can help you. I suggest you also have a current job related to fast food and food service to support the enough requirement

  28. Kaye says

    Hi Ma’am, I’m a certified public accountant here in the phil. and I would really want to try my luck in Canada. Would you suggest finding job at those listed mentioned above or thru agency? if ever this is my first time to work abroad.

      If you are a CPA, I suggest you apply directly at Auditing Firms. I think they post their vacancies online from their official websites. Good luck! :)

    Hi Ms. Fhel,

    I have a lola living in Canada? Can she sponsor me? How much will it cost for her to sponsor me?

    Thanks

    • says

      Do you mean sponsor as a live-in caregiver? Yes she can. But you have to meet the requirements first to apply for a working visa as a live-in caregiver. I have mentioned the link earlier to someone who asked about it before. Just read the previous comments :) Good luck!

Is there anyone or site or org who review resume and assign to job suited for my background? Thank you and God less Ms. Fehl.

      You may apply to the trusted websites I mentioned in the article or go to Malate or Taft Ave. in Manila. There are lots of agencies which hire factory workers for Canada. If you know Robinsons Place in Ermita, the agencies are everywhere surrounding that place.

    • Fehl says

      Neither. Sometimes I talk to travel agents though because I love traveling. I just shared this post to hear more insights and experiences about direct hiring in Canada since my sister was hired and is now working there.

    Hi Ms Fehl, I am curently employed as Sales Consultant for heavy equipments here in the Philippines. I would like to inquire what are the websites for canada that needs salesman for cars or heavy equipments? pls email me tnx and more power!

    • says

      You may check the mentioned websites in the article and just find your chosen job. I recommend you apply personally to the agencies you found in the Philippines too because majority of them prefer personal application

    • says

      If you use an agency in the Philippines, there may be placement fees but if you will be hired via direct hiring, no processing fees will be charged since you will process your papers yourself and you are juts dealing with your employer, Canadian embassy and POEA.

    anyway, i too have some queries that needed your professional opinion.
    I am aiah, 23 y/o. i am RN and an EMT. but as of now, i dont have any employment history. my sister is in canada together with her husband and children. she’s pregnant now for her 3rd baby. she’s looking for the one who will take care of her children (aging 5, 3, and next) while they work, and they want it to be me.
    my question is, can they be my employer? if yes, what would be the process to be undertaken by me and them?
    ^_^ Thank you!

    • says

      I think you can apply for the live-in caregiver program offered by Canada. That is offered by Canada to those who are interested to work as a nanny, caregiver or au pair. Read this page to know more what you must do when applying to that program in Canada. The requirements are all listed on that page. Good luck!

    Hello Miss Fehl,
    I am new here I just found this website today.
    I am a massage therapis for 5 years now and I am looking for agency that has direct hiring in Canada or ageny but I couldn’t simply find it in work abroad, mostly it’s in Australia. I am currently here in netherlands until end of march so by april i will be in the philippines. i am undergraduate in Engineering but I work as a massage therapist when I stop college, my previous work is in International Cruise Lines (Costa Cruise Ship) for 2 contracts lets say almost 2 years, But I wanted to work also as a housekeeping room attendant which I plan to enroll for housekeeping when I come back Philippines for another possibilities at work, I enjoy working in different job because I always care for clients . I speak fluent in English, basic Italian, basic French and basic Netherlands. How will I proceed miss Fhel?

  48. ched says

    hi, i am a CPA, two years in service, i also want to apply and moved to Canada but i do not specifically know what to do first or whom to contact first. any help? thanks

    • says

      The first thing you would need is an employer in Canada. Then the rest will follow. Prepare your credentials and papers then apply to all possible employers. If you are a CPA, apply to Auditing or Accounting Firms. If you are currently working in one, you may ask your HR or boss for possible position in Canada branch. There are many possible jobs for CPAs because all companies need accountants, CPA or just accounting staff. Apply to all the websites I mentioned so you’ll get more replies. :) Good luck!

  49. Vince V. Valmores says

    Hi Fehl, just dropping by. Just asking if do you have any idea about a certain agency here in Manila hiring a fish worker job in Canada? How about MMS? Hoping to hear from you soon. Godspeed!

    • says

      Hi, Vince! Nope, I don’t know any agency at the moment that hires fish worker. Check the name of the agency and verify it at POEA or check it at workabroad website to see if their license is still active. God bless and Happy Valentine’s!

  50. myren says

    hello,,,just want to ask,,, is it possible for me to apply work in Canada even though I’m currently employed here in Qatar.Do I have to go back in Philippines for me to process my application?

    • says

      Yes, you may apply there in Qatar provided you are working and living in Qatar officially. Also make sure you are complying with your employment contract in Qatar. If you were hired by a Canadian employer while you are still in Qatar, I think you may process your papers there at the Canadian embassy. Tell your employer in Qatar about your application to another job so they are aware of it.

  51. Elle says

    Hi Fehl! I’ve been here in Canada for over 2 years now. I had my SSS Contribution when I started working in the Philippines since 2007. When I moved here in Canada I didn’t notify the SSS that I won’t be able to continue my contribution starting 2010. So my SSS account has been dormant for over 2 years. My concern is that would I be able to access that contribution when I plan to go back home? Hope you could help me.

    • says

      If you stopped contributing, you must resume it. Sayang naman. Just update your SSS membership status as OFW and pay your contributions to become active again. I suggest you process it once you went back home in the Philippines. Bring your valid IDs. You can access your SSS account online anytime then if you became active again and if you register at the SSS Online Inquiry System (a.k.a. MY SSS)

    • Mike says

      Hi Mam Fhel, as I am reading this conversation, it helped me to have more ideas and urge to apply in Canada. I have tried so many times to look for agency or websites of company hiring for driver positions.
      I don’t have lots of credentials like my school records, I’m not even a high school graduate, only 3rd yr but I have experience as a driver for more that 15 yrs. I heard that Canada is also hiring skilled workers now .Is it possible for me to be qualified and where can I find the job opening?

      thanks.. and God Bless!

      • says

        Skilled workers must also have required training and courses like those given by Tesda. If you had those and relevant experience to the job you are applying and you have enough education (usually they require high school graduate for skilled…) then you have a chance. Don’t lose hope, find local agencies near you and apply.

  52. bethlog says

    Hi Miss Feh,
    I just asked help from a friend in Canada and she called me and told me she will hire me as caregiver. She also asked me to send my CV and then she will send me a contract.
    What are the things that she needs to to do? on my end, what are things i also need to do? thank you very much.

    bethlog

    • says

      Please read the page I have mentioned from a previous commenter who asked about the requirements for the caregiver program. Everything you will need to expect are there. Thank you and I hope you’ll get the job ;)

    hi, I’m a registered nurse, but got a minimal experience can i apply for caregiver or nursing assistance in Canada.

  54. Shobe says

    Hi Fehl,
    Your blog is very helpful for those seeking jobs in Canada. My agency here in Cebu already processed my papers to Canadian Embassy. Do you have any idea if Philhealth and Pag Ibig is one of the requirements? I’m working in a company where SSS is the only statutory benefits. We don’t have Pag-ibig and Philhealth, will this lead to visa refusal? Or do you think we should do a voluntary contributions instead? Just to give you an idea, we are working as homebased previously and just processed SSS recently. That’s the only deduction that we have right now.
    Your inputs will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    • says

      The Canadian Embassy requested for my sister’s SSS Employee Static Information. I think Pagibig and Philhealth are not really among the pre-requisites. Just relax, pray and smile everyday. Thank you and good luck!

  55. says

    Hi Miss Feh,
    Dahil syo nagka idea me mag apply directly sa mga website na binigay mo. Katatapos ko lang magsend after ko nakita ung match na job for me sakto they need Garment Pattern Maker. Sana ma-aaproved application ko . Matagal ko na hinahanap ung direct hiring no placement fee kasi yon. But I was thinking may age limit ba 30yrs old na me pwede pa po ba yon. Thanks much..

    • says

      Hello Jasmin! Wow, I’m glad. Age limit requirements are different. I think it depends upon the job. The usual age limit for skilled worker range from 23-35. You will see naman what is required at the job offer when they post it. Best of luck and I think you’ll get it. :)

      Your background could suit the Live-in Caregiver program of Canada. However, you need to have enough experience related to the job you are applying. Please see the complete requirements on the page I have given someone from the previous comments.

    hello ms. fehl :-) ask ko lang kung reliable po ba ang mga migration agent like visassimply..may mga processing fee po na hinihingi like sa australia assessment skills, and sa preparation sa IELTS..sa tingin nyo po ba is legitimate tong mga ganito?thanks in advance:-)

    • says

      If they have a real office in the Philippines and registered with DTI and other governing bodies in the country, they may be genuine. Also check their records like how many people they had helped with visa assistance and hear some feedback from their clients to know if they are really reliable. Be cautious to online visa assessment offers. A website which collects personal information is usually safe if the URL starts with https. If they don’t collect your info they, you’re safe

  72. ronnie says

    is it possible to migrate directly from saudi to canada???and what are the requirements?

      Oh that David Cohen is one of those spam emails millions of people receive everyday so we must not believe them for they are too good to be true. Remember, don’t reply to job offers you never even applied for or knew before.

        • says

          If you are permanently working in Saudi, you may apply your visa at the Canadian Embassy there in Saudi. Make sure you complete their requirements. I wonder if there are close travel agencies near you coz they can assist you well with your application. Are you applying in Canada as immigrant worker?

          • says

            You need an employer first and an approved job from Canada. Your employer will be the one who will process the needed papers for you before you submit them together with your requirements at the embassy there in Saudi

    hello.. im working as a child caregiver for about 2 years here in manila . graduate ako ng nursing but not yet a registered nurse . and i was luckily that my relative in canada found me an employer . my employer process my lmo
    last month. my questions are how long will i wait para sa lmo ?and pwede ba akong mag hulog sss as voluntary wala pa kc me hulog nun ei. am i qualified even im not a license nurse..anung next step pag napadala na ang lmo sa pinas ?
    tnx

    • says

      LMO result usually comes in 3 months from the time of application of the Canadian employer although some receive them earlier or later than that. I suggest, just pray and work happily while waiting for it. And make your SSS active by making sure you contribute and pay every month. If you are employed, make sure your company is remitting your SSS contributions. If you are not employed, just pay as a “voluntary SSS member”

  75. angie says

    Good day,

  77. Grace says

    Hi Fehl,

    I received an email from the employer in Canada, asking me on how I can obtain work permit in the country. I mentioned to him all the requirements needed like job offer. Apparently, he sent me an email saying that they can’t provide job offer but he keeps on asking me what is the best way to get the visa. He also sent me an email that he can only arrange an interview through skype once I know what are the requirements. I don’t know what the employer wants me to do in order to get this done. I have limited information to this as I don’t have relatives in Canada. Hope to hearing from you.

      • Grace says

        Thank you for your response. I’m applying for hotel staff position. The employer told me that they can’t provide sponsorship. He also informed that I’ll need to apply for BC residency 10 months and that’s the time they can provide a letter of proof and verification. I really don’t understand what he wants me to do.

        • Grace says

          Although, I can say that it is legit because I applied directly to the company’s website. Actually, I sent my resume tthough email.

        • says

          That employer sounds so vague to be dealing with. Real employers know what to do already. First, they would interview you and not ask any money because Canadians are so kind and decent. Second, they would tell you about your job, your benefits and the contract. If they liked you, then they will send you the employment contract (already containing your name, their company profile, your job description, benefits etc) This contract which you will sign must be sent back to them so your employer can apply for LMO. If your LMO was OK, things will be happening smoothly until you need to apply to the embassy of Canada in the Philippines. If your employer still dont know what to do, Gracey just let them read this webpage http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/hire/worker.asp

          • Grace says

            This is extremely helpful! Thank you so much. Just one more question, do you know how long it would take to obtain work permit for Canada?

          • says

            You are welcome, Gracey. My sister got hers in less than four months. Others got theirs in 3 months. My sister repeated her medical that’s why her visa timeline was extended lol It really depends on things required I think

            Yes they do have processing fee but they only collect them once the applicant has a visa and airline ticket already.

          • kaye says

            good day ms.fehl….Im studied housekeeping before under the program of TESDA and do my on the job training at Taal Vista Hotel as a room attendant but that was almost 2 months and a half because the hotel only requires 300 hours for the OJT. If I want to apply directly as a hotel staff (housekeeping),does their requires a year of experience in a hotel before they hire me?Please help me…Thank you..

          • says

            You have to check your employer requirements although usual requirements are at least a year of continuous paid job experience and another year of related experience.

            Hi ms. fhel, ,may chance po ba ang mga freshgraduate na makahanap ng direct employer?. .if nakapagwork po sa US for 4 months advantage po ba un/

          • says

            I think there are no advantages or chance that are clear. What matter is you meet the requirements in applying for a job if you are a foreign worker. Complete and genuine papers, enough education and background plus enough work experience

        I’m applying for hotel staff. He informed me that they can’t provide sponsorship. Although, he wants me to apply for BC residency 10 months and that’s the only time they can provide a letter of proof and verification. He has this condition before we can talk to skype for an interview. I really don’t know what he wants me to do. Any advise please. Thank you.

      I don’t know if Visassimply is legit because I’ve never dealt with them yet. I can only suggest people to NOT give their personal info unless they talked to the agents in person or if they have been in their office.

  80. Mark Louie Ordonez says

    Good day! Ms. Fehl, I am a BScomputer science graduate, and I am looking for a job in canada. Do you think an employer can accept my application even though I don’t have an experience jobs abroad.. Thanks and Godbless..

      • Mark Louie says

        Good Day Ms. Fehl, opo ma’am may job experience na po ako as computer encoder for 1 year and IT Staff for 2 years and 6 months as Computer Laboratory Facilitator.. Panu po ba ko makakapagapply sa mga company sa canada.. tumatanggap po kaya sila kahit wala pang experience abroad..? thanks po..

        • says

          If you will apply for IT jobs, that’s under the professional categories and you’ll be so lucky if you really find an employer and get hired. Usually for ITs they require 2-3 work experience and it would help if you worked from a well known company related to IT or computer

  81. wilhilma magsino quinoneza says

    im here in israel and i am a caregiver here, what is the best way for me to do to work in canada. thanks

    • says

      First look for an employer (family, friend, or relative or anyone who needs a caregiver or nanny). Then they would apply your permits in Canada. make sure you have all the necessary requirements to apply. Due to lots of queries about caregiver jobs, I will post a separate page here soon about it. Hang on :)

  82. Vocky M. Guiao says

    Hi Ms. Fehl,

    Just read your blog today and I find it very useful and informative. I am 36 years old, married with a 5-year-old son and a Registered Nurse in our country and currently residing in Pampanga. I want to work in Canada and I would like to ask whether you know a certain agency that offers caregiving jobs in canada? Please help me. May God bless us always with a pure heart. Shalom!

      Check out that building near intersection in San Fernando I know they hire caregivers and nurses for Australia and Canada. The building is where UnionBank is located.

  84. Mrs. JV says

    hi! just wanna ask if there are an available jobs abroad that fits me? well, i’m a simple employee now. but before, just a plain house wife for 10 years. I’m 34 yrs. old now, have 3 kids. I have lots of small tattoos exposed, and most of the time, that’s my problem when applying for a job. I’m here to seek help from you. I’m having trouble in applying because most of the companies doesn’t want tattoos. Hope i could hear from you. Thank you in advance. God bless & more power!

    • says

      Yes local employers here are very particular with tattoos and piercings so it’s really a turn off. If there’s a way you can erase them, maybe you can find a right job here. In abroad, tattoos are no big deal but the person must still look decent and neat. I think, it depends on the tattoo

  85. CYNTHIA MARTINEZ says

    good day mam! i would like to ask if this set-up from a referal is okay. the situation is; a broker from canada arrived to fetch 7 caregivers for their company. I was refered by my aunt’s friend to that person. i am from the province and i was requested to bring 50k for the processing of our papers and for the medical. my aunt’s friend says that upon arrival in manila we shall give the 50k to the broker and we will head right away for our medical then, we will have our training in tesda then we will go to poea, owwa and to the embassy. can I trust this set-up mam’ please give me some advise to secure my 50 thousand pesos. thank you!

    • says

      In my opinion, I should ask about the broker first – her address, her company, her affiliations in Canada, and your job offer in Canada. Did the employer interview you? Did you talk face-to-face or on video perhaps? There are strict requirements for caregivers in Canada. And the TESDA training centers must also be accredited by TESDA and the embassy of Canada. The persons who are applying for caregiver must also have enough experience like 2 years job related to care giving and nursing.

  86. Raquel Gonzales says

I just wanna ask if i can have my application for visa here in TH.? since i was here already, do i need to go back in our country and have my application there or shall i do it here? is there an embassy for canada here in asia aside from our country?

    • says

      I think you can apply there at the Canadian Embassy in Thailand if you are a resident of Thailand and you have permits to work there. Yes, the Embassy of Canada in Thailand is located in 15th Floor, Abdulrahim Place, 990 Rama IV Road, Bangrak, Bangkok

  100. tori says

    Good day Ms. Fehl! Kamusta po?
    Thank you po for your post and for patiently answering questions here. I am thinking of working in Canada and it’s funny because I never wanted to work abroad before, now here I am looking for employment out of the country. I realized I have to be brave enough to make future plans come into a reality. Now I know that applying for a working visa won’t take that long because I thought it would take years and years to wait for it as what was mentioned to me before by a relative. Nabuhayan po ako ng loob, thanks to you.=)
    I know that the topic is about direct hiring in Canada but I thought maybe I could try asking you about something else since you seem like a very generous person in sharing knowledge about working/applying in/for Canada. I would just like to ask po if a career in Special Education teaching or in Behavioral Therapy is lucrative there. I tried looking for the said jobs through the websites you posted but didn’t find much job postings related to it. A relative there though says that those jobs are lucrative there now, is it true po? Or maybe just true for some provinces in Canada?
    Thank you po for your answer in advance Ms. Fehl. God bless!=)

    • says

      Hello :) Thank you for the kind messages here. In my opinion, Special Education in Behavioral Therapy is not so common and there are only few people who are on that field. Thus, it may pay well in terms of salary and it may have low competition as to applicants. Use that and your experience on that career as an advantage :)

      • tori says

        Thank you very much po for your response Ms. Fehl!
        You do have a point, those careers seem to be very promising indeed :)
        I certainly hope to find a school or centre that offers direct hiring ’cause the ones I see on the net are mostly posts from agencies that requires a processing fee, which is beyond my financial capability.

        Sana nga po one day swertehin =)

        Maraming salamat po ulit Ms. Fehl and more power to you! :)

    • says

      First, know the employer if they are legit and if the company they are associated with are real. Did they interview your husband face-to-face? Did they check his requirements and credentials? Did they discuss the contract? If they did, then it might be a real job. If they don’t ask money, it may likely be real too.

      • says

        ah opo! he interview my husband face to face, he ask for the requirements, and he is the one (the kababayan who is canadian citizen) send his requirements via email to his friend in canada,that is work in canada government, regarding the contract as my husband said, pasok daw po cia as temporary worker, under skilled worker, just wait for the LMO, and apply for visa in makati the kababayan said just 3 to 4 months he will be there, he did not ask money just for processing fee, he also want my husband to undergo training in english.. thank you ms. feh for the help.. may God bless you more wisdom and the heart to help people like us!

        • says

          I think your husband’s Canadian job application is going smoothly and safe from what you tell here :) If his LMO is ok, then I’d say early congrats! :)

  102. Russell says

    Hello, just wanna ask, im a direct hired employee, i already have the LMO and EMPLOYMENT CONTRACT, what are the other documents or requirements i need to fill up?

    • says

      The employer is the one who will file the LMO and other papers in Canada needed for hiring a foreigner like you. Not all jobs require LMO though. Your employer in Canada should prepare all requirements like LMO before you proceed to apply for a visa in the embassy in the Philippines. You must wait for the LMO result before going further the next steps in applying as temporary foreign worker in Canada

Please send me information about that orientation. I am very interested to work in Canada and that is really the desire of my heart. Kindly refer to my email address. Thank you very much and you really inspired me today.

  107. DC08 says

    Yes you need to have completed six months of full-time training in a classroom setting or twelve months of full-time paid employment, including at least six months of continuous employment, within the past 3 years, with one employer in a field or occupation related to the job you are seeking as a live-in caregiver.

    -hi ms fehl pls advise me, graduate po ako ng nursing- pero ande pa ako nkpagboard exam (im working sa bpo, alam nyo namn po na mahirap ang buhay dd2 sa pinas- so need din ng mejo nice n income)

    anu po ba dpat gawin sa situation ko? actually po meron n akong LMO..super gulo pa rin kng panu ako ssimulan

    -dba sabi po sa taas n requirement 6 months schooling plus at least 6 months work experience as caregiver?

    -meron ba kaung massugests na caregiving work dito sa manial? prang wala kc..

    *thanks in advance po sa advise. very helpful po mga advises nyu n nbasa ko…:)

    • says

      Yup the school/training center for the caregiver training must be accredited by Tesda and Canadian Embassy. If you want to go schooling and training, just go directly to Tesda and ask a reputable training center. Much better if it’s near where you live. I don’t know any caregiving job but the training centers usually know some. Ask them and maybe they could refer some. You are welcome and good luck!

  108. Marckie26 says

    Hi! Just got the info through this site. I want to work in Canada in any manufacturing companies. I’ve been working in Malaysia since 2010 as a machine operator. Will it be possible to get a job in Canada as the position I have mentioned even though I am still in Malaysia or Do you have license agency from here that can hire a job to Canada?

    Please tell me more what should I do?

    Thanks and More Power Folks!

    • says

      Yeah it’s possible if you would apply for same job. You can apply at the Embassy of Canada there in Malaysia if you already have been hired by an employer in Canada and have the necessary papers. You can apply personally without using an agency. Your Canadian employer would tell you what to do

  126. kat says

    Hi Ms. Fhel, thank you for this informative forum. I got a lot of ideas regarding on how to find opportunities in Canada. I just only want to ask if I need to take up IELTS to improve my communications skills? And it is part of the requirements working in Canada? Thank you.

      Professional jobs like nursing requires the candidate to have IELTs specific score.. It really depends upon the job you are applying. If you went through an agency, they usually tell you it :)

        I am civil engineer by profession but my current job is estimator and quantity surveyor working in construction company here in ksa in almost 3yrs. And 3yrs. also back in the phils. I found many jobs suited to my career and work experiences to those websites that you referred to us. But, I have a little doubt that my credentials would not be good enough if I don’t have training like IELTS as my few friends told me. Please give me additional information and advice..Thank you so much. God Bless!

    Hi…ms. Feh I really enjoyed reading their comments from u, also I got more ideas from it.. I presently work at the government hospital as I.T. For about 6 year.., I heard ms. Feh that one of the requirement when applying to Canada is SSS contribution., as a government employee we are member of gsis (government security insurance system)..ok LNG po ba un”? To work in Canada is my greatest dream po..mas ma22lungan ko po pamilya ko…

    Thanks

    • says

      SSS static info is really not one of the primary requirements. They just request it as additional supporting document for the employment records of the applicant. If the embassy saw your current job is in the government, they would know you don’t have SSS. They MAY request your GSIS statements instead and some other docs about your job

      The decision will be from the consul. Chance is really not known until you passed your documents at the embassy

    Hello!

    I’ve been looking for a teaching job in Canada for a year now. I’ve already submitted my application to some of the employers there using the http://www.jobbank.gc.ca. But still, I am having a hard time to look for an employer who would be interested to hire me. I am a professional or licensed teacher here in the Philippines, I have had a thought that it may be really tough for me to look for a teaching job in Canada for they require an equivalent to obtain ,so I tried to submit an application for Receptionist, Administrative Assistant or even secretary positions. There are employers who just emailed me that they really admire my credentials or my experiences but then since they need an immediate employee they can’t hire me for I still live in the Philippines. It will take long to process my papers going there.. Actually I have relatives in Canada that has been residing there for 20 years… hmm what can you advice me then miss ’cause I really wanna work in Canada…

    Hello Ms. Fehl,
    I was an ex-ofw from Canada. I worked in Alberta for 2 years. After my 2 years, my employer extended me for another year, then I took a vacation. It was more than a month so my employer asked me to make up a story when I get back to Canada if ever the immigration people asks me why my vacation took too long. It was my first vacation after 2 years. In short, they were asking me to lie and my lady boss even told me to say that my parents got seriously ill so I won’t be able to go back to Canada right away. I didn’t like the idea so when I came back, I decided to try putting up a business here with my savings and I emailed my boss a resignation letter. Unfortunately, my mom suffered from stroke, last 2012 which made me decide more not to go back ’cause I am an only child and no one will take care of my mom but me and my dad only. To make the long story short, after a year, I tried applying again thru an agency but I was told I was never chosen by employers. Funny because I already had experience working in Canada as a food and beverage server. I also had a lot of experience working in a fast food chain here in the Philippines before. Now, I was not able to apply for work here since unemployment is one of the biggest problems here in our country. I would like to apply for work back in Canada again, I am 34 years old. Could you give me an advice on what to do? I already have a long gap with my employment. I am currently doing a home based online pastry business. I bake pastries, cakes and cupcakes. So what should I do? I’m scared I won’t be qualified anymore. But I do have a lot of certifications in Canada. My boss before by the way are Chinese couple. They also are not offering any sponsorship in Permanent Residency. I hope you could give me an advice regarding my problem. Thank you!

      Don’t lose hope besides you already worked to Canada. It’s hard if people give up. If you would strive more, you’ll get it.

Plus do hope in applying thru online, sending my CV in diff. site but they still didn’t reply. Do you have idea how to get easily job in Canada while im working here in Dubai. (Secretary cum Receptionist).
    thanking you.

    Regards,

      Getting a job around the world is never easy but if you’ve got experience and the job you’re applying has not much applicants, you’ll have more chance. You need prospective employers and you can find them online or thru friends and thru agencies. Choose all the ways and you’ll have more chance. Good luck :)
