recruitment agencies for canada

Looking for a job in Canada? In the Philippines, there’s only one safe place to look: the official website of the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA). Among POEA’s many responsibilities is licensing placement agencies who look for workers on behalf of foreign employers. Are you looking for a recruitment agency that has jobs in Canada? Here are all the recruitment agencies for Canada licensed by POEA.

IMPORTANT NOTE: COVID-19 related travel restrictions remain in place for Canada. Check the latest updates on the official Government of Canada websites (ending with .gc.ca) for the latest, up-to-date announcements. For more information, click here.

Canada remains a destination of choice for many Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs), and for good reason. The Government of Canada‘s Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) allows Canadian employers to hire foreign workers to help address acute labour shortages in specific industries.

CANADA IS A NO PLACEMENT FEE COUNTRY

Before you start looking for a job in Canada, you should keep in mind that Canada is a No Placement Fee country. That means, unlike many other popular destinations for OFWs, recruitment agencies for Canada are NOT allowed to collect placement fees for jobs in Canada.

If you are charged a placement fee, or if you are asked to make a payment without being issued a receipt, report the recruitment agency to POEA immediately.

Canadian employers are required to shoulder the costs associated with the recruitment of OFWs, including airfare and placement fees.

WHAT ARE THE BASIC REQUIREMENTS FOR WORKING IN CANADA?

In most cases, to be able work in Canada, you must meet the minimum requirements of both the Government of Canada and the Philippine Government, including:

  • a Canadian employer with a valid Labour Market Impact Assessment
  • a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) issued by Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC)
  • Employment Documents verified and authenticated by the Philippine Overseas Labour Office (POLO)
  • an Exit Clearance issued by POEA

Take note that a Work Permit is only issued by Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) officers upon arrival in Canada.

MINIMUM WAGE RATES BY PROVINCE AND TERRITORY (HOURLY)

Alberta – CAD$15.00
British Columbia – $14.60

HOW TO APPLY?

The single most popular question we get when it comes to finding a job in Canada is: “How to apply?”.

Unfortunately, the answer isn’t as simple nor straightforward as you’d hope it would be.

Going to Canada, especially as an OFW, is a very complicated affair, dependent of many requirements being met, by both the Canadian Employer as well as the OFW.

Both the Canadian Employer and the OFW must also meet the minimum requirements of both the Canadian and Philippine Governments.

While you may be tempted to pay illegal recruitment fees to make things easier for you, we have one piece of advice for you: DON’T.

When it comes to submitting an application to work in Canada, there are no shortcuts.

True, many before you have tried, and some have actually found loopholes in the system that allowed them to come to Canada as OFWs, but it never ends well.

If you want to come to Canada, our best advice is to follow the rules. If you are submitting an application from the Philippines, ONLY deal with recruitment agencies licensed by the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA).

POEA licenses recruitment agencies in the Philippines, allowing them to represent foreign employers looking for qualified workers to fill positions they are unable to find local workers for.

WHAT IS A RECRUITMENT AGENCY?

In the Philippines, Recruitment Agencies are private companies that look for workers on behalf of Canadian Employers.

Recruitment Agencies gather resumes and CVs (sometimes called manpower pooling), allowing Canadian Employers to choose from a pool of candidates.

Recruitment Agencies are paid by Canadian Employers for their services, which include interviewing OFWs.

Unlike manpower pooling for other countries, Recruitment Agencies are NOT allowed to collect placement fees (sometimes called recruitment fees) for OFWs bound for Canada.

Do NOT make any payments to Recruitment Agencies if you are applying as an OFW in Canada.

If you absolutely must, make sure that all payments are documented and you are issued a receipt. Do NOT make any payments through wire transfer services such as Western Union. Remember, if you do not have any receipts, you will NOT be able to get your money back if something goes wrong.

Canadian Employers and Recruitment Agencies can NOT guarantee that you will be allowed to enter Canada.

Only the Government of Canada‘s Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) has the power and authority to do that (and that only happens when you physically arrive in Canada, with the proper documents).

If you have made payments (under-the-table, or otherwise) to a Recruitment Agency for a job in Canada, report it to POEA ASAP. They’re not supposed to do that.

WHAT IS A JOB ORDER?

Canadian Employers work with Recruitment Agencies in the Philippines to look for suitable OFWs, by giving them a list of positions they have available.

Recruitment Agencies must register these positions with POEA, indicating the name of the position as well as the number of positions available.

These positions are called Job Orders.

Job Orders indicate when the position was submitted to POEA, as well as the Recruitment Agency responsible for the Job Order.

Unfortunately, there isn’t much additional information available on the official POEA list, such as a detailed description of the minimum requirements you must have in order to apply for the job.

To get a better idea, we would strongly suggest checking out the Government of Canada’s National Occupational Classification (NOC) list, which is a standardized list of job descriptions in Canada.

HOW TO APPLY FOR JOBS IN CANADA FROM THE PHILIPPINES

1) Contact a POEA-licensed Recruitment Agency.

Find out which jobs are available and submit the necessary documents for the Canadian Employer’s consideration.

After a preliminary Job Offer is made by a Canadian Employer (not the Recruitment Agency), both the Canadian Employer AND the OFW must submit requirements to BOTH the Government of Canada and the Philippine Government.

2) Apply for a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) / Submit documents for Verification and Authentication of Employment Documents

OFWs who have been offered a preliminary Job Offer must apply for a TRV at the Embassy of Canada through the Visa Application Centre (VAC).

In the Philippines, the VAC is VFS Global. Click on the link here: https://www.vfsglobal.com/en/individuals/index.html

Submitting Proof of Funds, results of Language Proficiency and Medical Examination tests as well as Biometrics are all part of the requirements for applying for a TRV.

Canadian Employers must also submit requirements to the Philippine Overseas Labour Office (POLO) which has jurisdiction over the province or territory of employment in Canada. This process is mistakenly referred to by many as Red Ribbon (because of the seal attached by the Philippine Embassy or Philippine Consulate to the employment documents).

OFWs will not be able to apply for their Exit Clearance without the Canadian Employers submitting requirements to POLO.

3) Attend PDOS, apply for OEC / Buy a ticket, get on a plane

Both the Government of Canada and the Philippine Government have safeguards in place to prevent Human Trafficking.

For OFWs, this includes mandatory attendance during the Pre-Departure Orientation Seminar (PDOS).

OFWs must also apply for an Overseas Employment Certificate (OEC) at the POEA. The OEC is presented by the OFW at the airport, before getting on a plane to Canada. OFWs can NOT get on a plane without a valid OEC.

4) Enter Canada with a valid Work Permit

Like all foreigners, OFWs must go through immigration procedures before being allowed to enter Canada.

Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) officers interview all foreigners, including OFWs, who wish to enter Canada, before deciding whether they can come in or not.

If the CBSA officer is satisfied that your documents are in order, and that your job offer is valid, you will be issued a Work Permit.

Make sure that all your documents are in order, and that the job offer from your Canadian Employer is legitimate, otherwise you WILL be detained and sent back to the Philippines.

WHERE CAN I FIND JOBS IN CANADA FOR FILIPINOS?

In the Philippines, the ONLY place you can find LEGITIMATE jobs in Canada for Filipino is at POEA.

Do NOT transact with Recruitment Agencies who are NOT licensed by POEA.
