Canada in need of 2,000 skilled, semi-skilled workers


Canada is in need of more than 2,000 skilled and semi-skilled foreign workers, according to JP Soriano's report on State of the Nation with Jessica Soho on Thursday night.

"There is already an agreement na it will be a government-to-government track at pine-prepare na po at pina-finalize na 'yung ating bilateral labor agreement. Then, we will be ready to start the deployment," said Bernard Olalia, administrator of the Philippine Overseas Employment Association (POEA).

Likewise, Slovenia is in need of 2,000 to 5,000 skilled and semi-skilled workers.

Salary could reach up to $1,000 or P50,000 to P75,000 per month.

The POEA advised interested applicants to prepare the requirements like passport and training certifications while the agreement is being ironed out.

POEA also said chances of getting hired in Canada and Slovenia are bigger for those who have job experiences locally.

It also urged interested applicants to monitor its website for the job orders. —KBK, GMA News
