Canada Jobs for Filipinos, No Placement Fee Country, and Recruitment Agency Lists

Canada has hundreds of job openings for Filipinos with no placement fee in 2023. Here are the latest job openings from DMW/POEA accredited manpower agencies for Canada.

From the Philippines, experienced OFWs can apply for a job bound for Canada through several DMW/POEA accredited recruitment agencies. All they need to know is to determine which of the agencies have approved job orders from employers in the said country.

One of the top destinations for overseas Filipino skilled workers who want to permanently immigrate to another country is Canada. I can clearly understand why. The fact, that Canada is a beautiful country literally and figuratively can be attributed to its captivating landscape and awesome people. It also offers hope for a better future for skilled workers and their respective families.

Canada is one of the top choices for expats for many years in terms of several ranking factors such as quality of life, personal safety, financial security, and ease of raising a family. At least according to annual surveys for expats conducted by several companies.

Read: Australia Job Openings for Filipinos No Placement Fee

Canada is a No Placement Fee Country

In a POEA News release dated December 14, 2014, Philippine Overseas Employment Agency Administrator Hans Leo Cacdac told that licensed recruitment agencies are not allowed to charge recruitment or placement fees to OFWs bound to countries that prohibit the collection of such fees.

Canada is one of those countries that prohibits the collection of placement fees. Agencies found charging placement fees to Filipino workers bound to ‘no placement fee countries’ will experience license cancellation.
Cacdac advised OFWs to report to their official Facebook page those agencies that collect placement fees to ‘no placement fee countries.’

Why Filipinos should get a Job in Canada

Canada has 4 seasons: Spring which happens during the months of March to June, Summer between the months of June to September, Autumn which took place during the months of September to December, and Winter in the months of December to March. If you are a Filipino who wants to experience 4 seasons then you should get a job in Canada.

Moreover, according to’s report in 2021, Canada is ranked 9th overall as the best place for expats. The country ranked 5th in terms of “Quality of Life,” 9th in the “Quality of Environment,” 13th in terms of “Safety & Security,” and 4th in “Digital Life.”

FAQs about Working in Canada for Filipinos

How Many Filipinos are there in Canada

As of 2021, there is a total of 18021 Filipinos who recently acquired Permanent Residency (PR) status in Canada. The Philippines ranked third in terms of the number of PR admitted in 2021 after India (ranked 1st) and China (ranked 2nd). There are thousands of OFWs that have new work permits under the country’s Temporary Foreign Worker Program.

Based on the 2016 National Household census (ethnicity data) conducted as of May 2016, there are 837,130 people in Canada with a Filipino ethnic origin. These numbers have increased by 26.3 percent from 662,000 back in 2011.

The Filipino population is heavily concentrated in 4 major Canadian cities. These are Toronto in Ontario, Calgary in Alberta, Vancouver in British Columbia, and Winnipeg in Manitoba.

Filipino women outnumber Filipino men by roughly 27 percent in terms of population in all 13 Canadian provinces and territories. Filipino women have a population of 468,015 thousand while Filipino men have 369,105 thousand. The list of OFWs that hoped to work and migrate there continues to increase every year.

What is the Unemployment Rate in 10 Canadian Provinces

The national unemployment rate of Canada based on is 5.6 percent with respect to the total labor force as of February 2020. This just means that for every 100 people, 15 years old and above capable of working in Canada, roughly 5.6 of it is unemployed.

These numbers, however, are the average in Canada as a whole. The unemployment rate differs per province. Here are the list of provinces and their respective unemployment rate (in percent):

  • Newfoundland and Labrador – 12.0 percent
  • Prince Edward Island – 8.0 percent
  • Nova Scotia – 7.8 percent
  • New Brunswick – 6.9 percent
  • Quebec – 4.5 percent
  • Ontario – 5.5 percent
  • Manitoba – 5.0 percent
  • Saskatchewan – 6.2 percent
  • Alberta – 7.2 percent
  • British Columbia – 5.0

The data does not show the unemployment rate in Canada’s 3 territories particularly Yukon, Nunavut, and Northwest Territories.

What does this data mean for Filipino job seekers? If they will be given a chance to select which Canadian province to immigrate to, they can consider those provinces with a low unemployment rate. But then, this depends on the skillset they will bring, as for sure, these provinces have different needs when comes to human resources.

What are Canada’s Biggest Industries by Employment

According to Investopedia, Canada’s major industries in terms of employment are Tourism, Oil and Gas, Manufacturing, and Energy. The Oil and Gas industry is mostly located in Saskatchewan, Alberta, Northern Territories, and Nova Scotia provinces. Wind Farms and Coal deposits are found in Alberta, Quebec, Prince Edward Island, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, and other western provinces. Filipinos with a background in Engineering, Technical, and Oil and Gas can find jobs in these provinces.

Ontario and Quebec are Manufacturing hubs for cars and different types of vehicles. There are also more than 2000 food processing companies that are operating in Ontario. Filipinos who have work experience related to any kind of food processing may be in demand in these provinces.

Canada has a very lively Tourism industry. There are northern lights and polar ice fields in their northern territories. There are 20 UNESCO world heritage sites, captivating mountains, lakes, and unique culture. There is Niagara Falls and a number of museums. These things I have mentioned are all over the country. Those Filipinos who have a background in tourism, culinary, hotel, and restaurant management can also find jobs there.

Based on several news sites, Canada wants 1 Million immigrants for the next 3 years which is from 2019 to 2021. So, it is possible for Filipinos with the right skill set to find jobs and immigrate to Canada.

For Your Own Safety

    Mercan used to post that they have job available but there are lot of us still waiting for our employers. I had my application since February 2014, I always ask my Recruitment Specialist about my application and they’re always referring me to other countries like DUBAI or OMAN. I still have hope to work someday in Canada and I think it will be worth the wait. I also hope MERCAN can still manage to send people there. I am trying to find other ways to seek employers but it seems impossible. And I am also meeting other people like me in Facebook that they were also waiting for years in MERCAN that our wish will make it possible. Canada is my dreamland and I am very eager to come there soon. God Bless!
