HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO GET TO CANADA AND WORK?
It will take approximately three to seven months for a worker to be deployed to Canada.

which takes three to six months.

I AM A CANADIAN EMPLOYER AND WOULD LIKE TO HIRE FOREIGN WORKERS FROM THE PHILIPPINES.

HOW MUCH WILL IT COST ME?

For Employers, the average cost per temporary foreign worker hired is CAD $2,000.00. 
This includes airfare, documentation costs, and our service fee. Under the Temporary
Foreign Worker Program, the employers shall shoulder all costs relative to the hiring
of the foreign worker, to include 100% round trip airfares for the worker and all related
recruitment costs, without reimbursement.
WHAT TYPE OF VISA WILL BE ISSUED TO THE WORKERS?
A Work Visa will be issued should the application of the workers be approved by the CIC
at the Canadian Embassy.
HOW LONG IS THE CONTRACT TERM?  WHAT HAPPENS AT THE END OF THE CONTRACT?
As a Temporary Foreign Worker, the maximum allowed duration to work in Canada is
twenty four  (24) months. The worker must then secure another work permit in order to
continue working in Canada.
CAN I EXTEND THE CONTRACT OF THE WORKERS WITH OUR COMPANY?
The Temporary Foreign Workers are only allowed to work in Canada for 24 months. 
Thereafter, the workers must leave Canada for 4 months before receiving another work
permit.

In some provinces as Alberta, the employers have the prerogative of nominating a
qualified worker to become an immigrant.  This allows the worker to continue to work
with the employer and still remain “in-status” with CIC, until the nomination process is
completed.
WOULD IT BE POSSIBLE TO SPEAK WITH THE APPLICANT BEFORE MAKING A FIRM OFFER TO HIRE? 
Yes. We can arrange for the employer to interview the applicant. This will allow the
employers to further evaluate the applicant’s personality and character and assist
the employer in finalizing a job offer. This can be done through many ways, real-time on-
line by web-cam, via telephone conferencing, or in person. 
HOW WOULD THE SALARY AS A FOREIGN WORKER COMPARE WITH THE CANADIAN STANDARD?
All workers in Canada, including foreign workers, are protected by relevant labor and
employment laws.  The wages offered to the foreign worker must be at least the average
of the wages for the same occupation in the area.
WILL THE EMPLOYER PROVIDE HOUSING?
The employer will ensure that adequate housing is available for the foreign worker and can
r
ecoup costs of the accommodation for the worker, at a cost that will not exceed one third
of the base salary of the worker.
WILL THE WORKER BE ENTITLED TO MEDICAL COVERAGE IN CANADA?
Employers must provide medical coverage until employee is eligible for provincial health
coverage, and workers must be registered under the appropriate provincial workers
 compensation / workplace safety insurance plan.
