Canada is in need of 2,000 Filipino skilled workers with a salary amounting to PhP80,000.
Yukon, Canada, and the Philippines signed an agreement last week for the employment of 2,000 Filipino skilled workers every year.
Yukon is a territory located in the northern part of Canada that only has 20,000 population in its capital city which is White Horse.
“Underpopulated talaga. Imagine city 20,000. It is even smaller than one of the barangays here,” says Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello.
“Grabe ang industriya doon, mining and of course yung salmon,” Bello added.
According to Secretary Bello, Yukon is in need of different skilled workers such as nurses, caregivers, engineers, heavy equipment/machine operators, chefs, and teachers. The minimum salary will be as much as PhP80,000 and could reach hundreds of thousands depending on the position.
Because of this, Bello asked the POEA to speed up the processing of qualified applicants.
“Hindi na natin hihinginy ung template contract kasi nakikita naman naming na well-protected, well-paid, and well respected,” says Bello.
A Filipino nurse in Japan is interested in this job offer.
“Magandayung benefits and pwede mong dalhin ang family mo. Bilisanlangyung processing,” says Michael Domingo, a nurse from Japan.
According to POEA, the processing will be under a government to government which means that POEA will handle the applications and no placement fees will have to be paid.
Currently, the job orders are still being managed and it is advised to wait for the further announcement at the POEA website.
