Filipinos in Canada: An Overview

Since the 1930s, many Filipinos have decided to call Canada their home.

As of April 2018, there are a total of 901,218 Filipinos in Canada (or 2.6% of Canada’s national population) who came to the country as temporary foreign workers (TFWs), permanent residents, or naturalized Canadians1.

The statistics show significant growth as it was only two years earlier when the census reported 837,130 people identifying as having Filipino ethnic origin (see image below).

filipinos in canada

Today, the Philippines remains a leading source of immigrants to Canada, followed by India, China, and Iran.

Most Filipinos initially work in Canada as temporary foreign workers and then apply for permanent resident status once they get the opportunity.

As a Canadian citizen/permanent resident, you have plenty of privileges. These include sponsoring your family members–including your parents and grandparents–for Canadian immigration.

Not only are you helping to improve your social status by working in Canada, but you are also indirectly saving the Philippine economy. In fact, in 2017 alone, remittances from Filipinos in Canada increased by 12.6% (from USD 572,820,000 in 2016 to USD 644,754,000 in 2017).

 

Why Work in Canada?

Canada has consistently ranked among the best countries in the world for immigrants because of its outstanding healthcare system, spectacular natural beauty, stable economy, plenty of job opportunities, and overall excellent quality of life.

The country is also ideal for Filipinos who prefer to study before finding a job. Unlike its neighboring country, the US, Canada allows students to work 20 hours a week, either on or off-campus.

In addition, you can bring your spouse with you and let him/her work full-time for the duration of your studies, something that international students in the US with F-2 status aren’t allowed to do.

Most importantly, working in Canada as a temporary foreign worker gives you a once-in-a-lifetime chance to upgrade to permanent resident status.

Aside from living in a country that genuinely values your hard work, you’ll also gain Canadian citizenship with a passport that can take you anywhere without applying for a visa.

How To Work in Canada: A Step-by-Step Guide for Filipinos

1. Know Your Options and Eligibility

how to work in canada 1

Two things may hamper you from finding a job in Canada: It’s either you (1) don’t have the necessary qualifications, skills, and employment background, or you are (2) “inadmissible,” meaning you are not allowed to come to Canada under Canada’s immigration law2.

If you don’t fall in the second category, you may have the chance to work in Canada, assuming you have the right skills.

Canada offers different programs for immigrants. It will be up to you if you prefer to be a permanent resident upon arrival in Canada or be employed as a temporary foreign worker.

a. Express Entry

If you want to work and move to Canada permanently, you must be a skilled worker qualified in one of the three Express Entry programs:

  • Federal Skilled Worker (FSW) program requires Filipino applicants to have the education, language ability, and skilled work experience in any of Canada’s 300+ eligible occupations. This is a point-based system, so once you enter the Express Entry pool, you’ll be ranked according to the points you earn. The highest-ranking applicants are usually invited to apply for permanent residence.
  • Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP), launched in January 2013, puts more value on one’s practical training than formal education. To qualify for FSTP, the applicant must have at least two years of work experience within the last five years in one of the eligible skilled trades.
  • Canadian Experience Class is for those with skilled work experience in Canada.

In addition to the three Express Entry programs above, you may also be picked through the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), which is for people who have the qualifications and have been nominated by a specific Canadian province/territory to immigrate to Canada.

You can fill out this form to find out if you’re eligible for any of the three Express Entry programs above.

Based on your answers, the system will determine if you’re qualified for any of the programs and what you need to do next in case you are. You will also be added to the pool of candidates for immigration and possibly get an invitation to immigrate.

Here’s a caveat: If you apply for any of the above-mentioned programs, it may take ages before your application can be approved–especially if you have no qualifying job offer.

This is when the Temporary Foreign Worker (TFW) program comes into the picture.

b. Temporary Foreign Worker (TFW) program

Under this program, Filipinos are hired by employers who can prove that there’s a shortage of people in Canada with the skills and experience they’re looking for.

Hard-working Filipinos consider the TFW program a stepping stone to becoming Canadian citizens. This is because after gaining enough experience, they can apply for permanent resident status through the Canadian Experience Class.

UPDATE: Starting April 30, 2022, job-seekers may take advantage of the changes in the Temporary Foreign Worker (TFW) program3 as some businesses in Canada are now allowed to hire more low-wage workers to address labor shortages. Most of these businesses belong to the following sectors: 

  • Foodservice
  • Hotel
  • Hospitality service
  • Accommodation
  • Fish and seafood processing

Furthermore, changes in the TFW program include:

  • 18-month Labor Market Assessment validity
  • Removed limit on the number of low-wage positions in seasonal industries
  • 3-year work permit for high-wage workers

2. Search for a Job

how to work in canada 2

You’ve probably decided which path to getting a job in Canada best fits you. Of course, the next step would be finding an employer willing to hire you.

If you’re eligible for the Express Entry programs and want to become a permanent resident in the shortest time, I encourage you to apply through the Job Bank.

The Job Bank is Canada’s official job site which matches Express Entry candidates with eligible employers. Express Entry candidates with job offers earn higher points, not to mention the convenience of arriving in Canada with a job already waiting for you.

Filipino caregivers and other skilled workers who want to go to Canada under the Temporary Foreign Worker (TFW) program can find jobs at recruitment agencies accredited by the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration or POEA (now the Department of Migrant Workers or DMW).

A 2018 notice from the website of the Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO) in Vancouver reveals that the direct hiring of Filipinos has been put on hold, and only those that the members of the diplomatic corps have hired, international organizations, high-ranking government officials, and other qualified employers are exempted from this ban.

As a result, the only way for most Filipinos to get a job in Canada is through a POEA-accredited recruitment agency.

To find out which agencies in the Philippines have a valid license, go to this link and enter any name of the recruitment agency you’re dealing with to verify its legitimacy.

3. Wait for the Documentary Requirements To Arrive

how to work in canada 3

After finding a prospective employer willing to hire you, you only need to wait for the necessary documents to arrive.

In Canada, employers who cannot find any Canadian available for the position they offer must apply for a Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA).

A positive LMIA means there’s no Canadian available to do the job, and there’s a need for a foreign worker (in this case, a Filipino) to fill the job vacancy. A positive LMIA is also called a confirmation letter.

Once the employer receives a positive result, he/she will send you the LMIA along with the job offer and contract.

As for the job offer, review specific details as soon as you receive the document. Important sections you must review include Salary and Benefits, Job Description, and Working Hours. 

Never accept a job offer from someone asking you for money or your credit card information.

After receiving the required documents from your employer, you can now apply for a work permit (and temporary resident visa, if required).

Did you know? Not all employers are required to obtain LMIA. To verify if your job offer needs LMIA, check this link for the Labor Market Impact Assessment exemption codes.

4. Apply for a Work Permit

how to work in canada 4

Now that you already have the LMIA and the job offer from your employer, you can apply for your work permit at designated visa application centers.

To apply for a work permit, you will need all of the following:

  • Contract
  • Job Offer Letter
  • Copy of the Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA).
  • LMIA Number

Take note that not all jobs require a work permit. Please refer to this link for a complete list of jobs that don’t need a work permit. If you don’t need such a permit, you must apply for a visa before going to Canada.

There are two types of work permits in Canada:

  • An employer-specific work permit prohibits you from working for other employers except those initially hired you. This states the name of the specific employer you will work for in Canada, how long you’ll work, and the location/place where you’ll be employed.
  • As its name suggests, an open work permit allows you to work openly for any employer in Canada. However, an open-work permit is only given to a limited number of candidates. Check out this list to know if you can get this work permit.

Not sure which type of work permit you’re qualified for? Answer the questions on this page to find out.

How to Apply for a Work Permit for Canada in the Philippines

a. Submit your application

You have the choice to apply either on paper or online.

However, an online application is recommended not only because it’s quicker and cheaper (no need to pay for courier fees), but it also ensures that you can submit additional documents quickly should they request them.

In addition, you can get real-time updates on the status of your application through your online account. To start applying for a work permit, go to this link.

b. Provide your fingerprints and photo (biometrics)

After submitting your application and paying the required biometrics fee, you’ll receive an instruction letter detailing how and where to give your biometrics (fingerprints and photos).

You only have up to 30 days to give your biometrics in person at designated application centers in the Philippines.

There is a Canada visa application center (CVAC) in Manila and another in Cebu where Filipino workers bound for Canada can provide their biometrics. You can visit this website for more info.

c. Undergo a medical exam

Once they’ve confirmed that the documents you’ve submitted are complete, you may be asked to go to an interview with Canada’s representative in the Philippines.

For some candidates, a medical exam is required. In case you need to go through a medical examination, you’ll be instructed by the representative who’ll interview you about where and how the medical exam will take place.

d. Wait for the approval letter

If your application is approved, you’ll receive a letter that says you can work in Canada within the time frame specified in your contract.

Remember, this letter is not your work permit. Bring this letter when you travel to Canada. The work permit is only issued to Filipino workers upon arrival in Canada.

5. Prepare To Become an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW)

how to work in canada 5

Now that you have a work permit, the Philippine government is the only thing standing between you and your dream job in Canada.

As a soon-to-be overseas Filipino worker (OFW), you must undergo the Pre-Employment Orientation Seminar (PEOS). The POEA/DMW offers this free service to teach aspiring OFWs about overseas job application procedures, the documents/costs involved, and ways to prevent illegal recruitment.

All Filipino workers bound for Canada must also apply for an Overseas Employment Certificate (OEC), which you show to the Philippine immigrant officials on your departure date so they can allow you to leave.

6. Arrive in Canada

how to work in canada 6

When you arrive in Canada, don’t expect the border services officer (BSO) to give you the work permit immediately.

You’ll go through a meticulous screening procedure to help them ensure you’re the same person approved to work in Canada.

After the initial identity check (during which your fingerprints are checked and compared against their records), you’ll be asked to present the following entry requirements:

  • Port of Entry (POE) Letter of Introduction.
  • Your passport.
  • Your visa (if applicable).
  • Travel documents like airline tickets, etc.
  • Supporting documents such as a copy of your employer’s positive LMIA (if requested), proof of work experience/education, or offer of employment number (which your employer received after submitting the offer through the Employer Portal). The offer of employment number applies only to those exempted from submitting LMIA and arriving in Canada to work for a specific employer.

When the BSO confirms that you can enter Canada, they will print your work permit. The BSO will also stamp your passport and inform you how long you can stay in Canada.

Make sure you give honest answers when interviewed by the BSO. Filipino workers under the TFW program may be denied entry if they cannot prove to the BSO with their answers and documents that they will leave Canada at the end of their approved stay.

 

Tips and Warnings

  • Get your credentials assessed before applying and moving to Canada. An assessment agency must assess your education, work experience, and professional credentials to confirm that you are fit to work there, particularly for regulated jobs. This will take time and money. 
  • Do your research to ensure that you are paid right. The general minimum wage in Ontario is $14.35/hour as of October 2021. Please note that it can differ per province or territory. 
  • Plan your living expenses. It’s not enough to look at the potential salary increase you get when deciding to move to Canada. In 2021, the average cost of living in Canada is $2,730 monthly. It’s even more expensive in highly populated cities such as Toronto. You should calculate your expenses to decide if it’s worth the move. 
  • Don’t forget about income taxes and mandated government contributions when calculating your potential earnings.
