Filipinos continue to be one of the fastest growing communities in Canada. Since the 1950s, Canada has become the destination of choice for Filipinos to visit, study, work and immigrate.

The Government of Canada has a complex system of immigration programs which foreign nationals can submit applications to.

In most cases, the entire thing is initiated by the Canadian employer, who asks for permission from the Government of Canada to hire an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) from the Philippines.

Among other things, the Canadian employer must prove that they have tried to find a Canadian citizen or permanent resident to do the job. They must also show that the job is in the list of jobs approved by the Government of Canada.

REQUIREMENTS FOR CANADIAN EMPLOYERS HIRING OFWS FOR JOBS IN CANADA FROM THE PHILIPPINES

Canadian employers who would like to hire OFWs from the Philippines must first apply for a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) from Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC).

Once a positive LMIA has been issued by ESDC, Canadian employers will provide OFWs with a copy.

Canadian employers should contact the Philippine Overseas Labour Office (POLO) that has jurisdiction over the province or territory of employment to submit documents. This process is called the Verification and Authentication of Employment Documents.

Some refer to this process as Red Ribbon.

Once complete, the Canadian employer should provide the OFW with a copy of the verified and authenticated employment documents, which is one of the requirements for an Exit Clearance.

In most cases, Canadian employers must partner with a POEA-licensed recruitment agency when hiring OFWs from the Philippines.

REQUIREMENTS FOR APPLYING FOR A TEMPORARY RESIDENT VISA (TRV) TO CANADA

If you are in the Philippines, the only place you should look for jobs in Canada is at the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA).

POEA is the Philippine Government agency responsible for overseas employment, including the oversight of local recruitment agencies.

POEA licenses local recruitment agencies to conduct manpower pooling for overseas employers, including those in Canada.

Unlike many countries, jobs in Canada are NOT for sale.

Canada is a No Placement Fee Country. Canadian employers are required to shoulder all costs related to hiring OFWs from the Philippines, including placement fees from POEA-licensed recruitment agencies.

Both the Canadian employer and the OFW must submit requirements to both the Government of Canada and the Philippine Government before the OFW can start working in Canada.

This includes (but not limited to):

  • Canadian employer applying for a positive LMIA
  • Canadian employer submitting requirements to the POLO which has jurisdiction over their province of employment
  • OFW applying for a Philippine passport
  • OFW applying for a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) at the nearest Visa Application Centre (VAC)
  • OFW applying for an Exit Clearance at POEA.

Work Permits are issued by Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) officers upon arrival in Canada.

COVID-19 TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS CURRENTLY IN PLACE

The Government of Canada has currently imposed travel restrictions in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Currently, only Canadian citizens and permanent residents, as well as foreign workers and international students with valid work permits are being allowed to enter Canada.

OFWs are advised to encourage their Canadian employers to contact Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) for more information.
