What are the qualifications involved in the opening of 2,000 more jobs every year?

Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III said that Canadian employers most usually prefer Filipino workers because of their attitude towards work and their work ethics.

Canadians prefer Filipino workers because of the impression of our quality of work and efficiency. They are also conscious about the family bond, hence, they encourage the workers to bring their family with them in Canada and they will facilitate their entry.”

According to DOLE, most of the positions available would be related to careers that involve heavy machinery operators, nurses, chefs, cooks, call center agents, caregivers, engineers, and other local opportunities which are also given to locals there.

Bello also noted that the Canadian counterparts were eager and was happy to sign a bilateral agreement to authenticate and formalize the job opportunities in Yukon. However, he made a request to them to visit the Philippines and sign the agreement here.

Moreover, he then continued to explain and describe Yukon; he tried to describe the place in general and explained why it is an excellent place for Filipinos in Canada.

Yukon is a territory in northwest Canada and we think there are around 20,000 residents or people, of which, 3,000 are Filipinos. So, everywhere you go, you will see and meet Filipinos. They are very welcome in the community.”

Deployment of OFWs in Yukon, Canada

After the agreement was finalized, Silvestre Bello III directed Bernard Olalia, the Administrator of the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) to fast-track and hasten the deployment of workers to Yukon.

After we met with our counterparts, I advised Admin Olalia to liberalize the deployment of OFWs (overseas Filipino workers) in Canada.
