Reports coming from the Philippine Overseas Employment Agency (OFW) in Manila indicated that Canada have signified hiring more Overseas Filipino Workers.
According to the POEA chief, Rosalinda Baldoz, a group of Canadian employers are in the Philippines with expressed intention of hiring more overseas Filipino workers.
Baldoz also stressed that recruitment will have to go through licensed recruitment agencies in the Philippines and prohibits charging the applicants for placement fees.
Most of the employers present in the recruitment mission in Manila are from the cities of Regina and Saskatoon, both in the province of Saskatchewan.
Some Canadian provinces have signed agreements with the Philippine government regarding more access for Filipino workers for employment in Canadian businesses having trouble with their local recruitment efforts.
