Canada’s Temporary Foreign Worker Program

Canada has dozens of immigration programs that helps it face the challenges of an aging population to help it strengthen its economy.

One of these programs is the Temporary Foreign worker program, which allows Canadian employers to hire foreign workers from the Philippines.

Canadian employers must first ask for permission from the Government of Canada, which includes proving that they had not found suitable candidates from Canadian citizens and permanent residents.

Before foreign workers can start working for their Canadian employers, they must first be issued a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV), travel to Canada and receive a Work Permit upon arrival.

Both Canadian employers and foreign workers from the Philippines must meet the requirements of the Government of Canada and the Philippine Government before they can leave the Philippine and start working in Canada.

Foreign workers from the Philippines

Tens of thousands of foreign workers from the Philippines leave every year to work in different countries around the world, including Canada.

Foreign workers from the Philippines who would like to work in Canada should start by submitting an application to recruitment agencies licensed by the DMW.

Recruitment agencies conduct preliminary interviews and provide Canadian employers with a shortlist of the most qualified candidates.

Canadian employers then make an offer of employment, which will be part of the application process for a TRV.

Foreign workers from the Philippines are paid the same wages as Canadian citizen and permanent residents who do the same job.

National Occupational Classification (NOC) Codes

The National Occupational Classification (NOC) is Canada’s system for describing occupations.

Canadian employers use the NOC as part of their application for a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA), in order to hire temporary foreign workers from the Philippines.

The NOC Code classifies occupations and outlines main duties as well as educational requirements that may be needed for the job.

Median salaries in Canada

Median salaries is a figure that takes the salaries of a particular occupation and reports the middle number in that set.

Temporary foreign workers from the Philippines may be paid higher or lower than the median salary indicated for a particular occupation.

Knowing the median salary is useful for temporary foreign workers from the Philippines who are applying for jobs from Canadian employers.
