Filipino workers will be able to get a job in Canada, Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III announced last week.
Bello is scheduled to go to Canada on March 14 to sign bilateral labor agreements with the provinces of Ontario and Yukon that aim to provide employment opportunities for Filipinos, according to the Philippine Star.
He said: “This will create a lot of work destinations for our workers. Canada has good employment terms.”
Bello stated that he was supposed to sign a memorandum of understanding with the province of Prince Edward, but that some details of the agreement had not been worked out.
Foreign workers in Canada can apply for resident visas, he added.
“They offer to hire workers from our country because Filipinos are skilled and reliable,” he said.
