Canadian Employers from New Brunswick will begin Manila conducting information sessions about the New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). Here’s everything you need to know about how to register for the Canada Job Fair this October.
FIRST, PUT ALL YOUR REQUIREMENTS TOGETHER
Before you start packing your bags for Canada, there are a couple of things you should know about the upcoming Canada Job Fair in Manila.
The Job Fair isn’t open to the public. Like in years past, the Government of New Brunswick sends out invitations to Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) through an online system that you have to register (for free).
Also, this isn’t exactly a normal Job Fair in the traditional Filipino sense.
Although you’ll get to meet representatives from the Government of New Brunswick, as well as the Canadian Employers who will be hiring OFWs, you will still need to meet the requirements of both the Philippine Government AND the Government of Canada before you can leave the Philippines to start your new life in Canada.
Before you click the link, get all of this together:
The photo page of your current (and valid) Philippine passport (required)
Visa for your current country of legal residence (required if your current country of legal residence is not your country of citizenship)
Your language test results (required if you have complete a language test)
Your ECA report (required if you have completed an ECA assessment)
Your CV (optional)
Your Spouse’s CV (optional) (if applicable)
Current driver’s license (front and back in a single document)
You also need a computer with an internet connection, a scanner (or phone, so you can take digital copies of those documents) and a valid email address.
When you’re ready, click on the link to start the registration process.
