Canada Introduced Fast Track Work Permits for Filipinos

The Canadian government is helping Canadian employers efficiently hire the workers they need to fill jobs and grow the economy.

In a recent announcement, Canada’s Minister of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship, Marc Miller, unveiled a groundbreaking initiative called “CAN Work Philippines.” 

This new pilot program has introduced quick-access work permits in the Philippines.

The program will streamline work permit processing for eligible Canadian employers and allow them to schedule group appointments for medical examinations and biometrics for potential employees so that skilled workers from the Philippines can come to Canada.

The pilot is open to Canadian employers recruiting from the Philippines and hiring approximately 50 or more workers, or for critical occupations in sectors such as health care, construction, and agri-food.

To participate in the program, employers must demonstrate their commitment to fair and ethical recruitment guidelines, as published by the International Organization for Migration (ION).

The Philippines is an important partner for Canada’s Indo–Pacific Strategy and a major source of newcomers to Canada. 

These efforts will further strengthen the close social ties between the two countries while addressing critical labour shortages in the Canadian economy and further cementing Canada as a top destination for global talent.
