Canada Is Turning To Filipino Workers To Work For Them This Year


Canada Is Turning To Filipino Workers To Work For Them This Year


How do you feel about this story?


Due to the ongoing pandemic, Saskatchewan, Canada is persuading Filipino workers to work for them in order to replenish their healthcare system.

The Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) is planning to hire permanent, full-time nursing and laboratory staff.

The authority intends to hire Filipino workers, as they seek at least 150 workers out of over 1,000 vacancies.

According to Statistics Canada in 2016, 25% of healthcare workers in Saskatchewan were immigrants, and approximately 30% of professionals in Canada are Filipinos, with the majority of them being women.

“We could not be without our Filipino nurses. They are a gigantic asset, and we could not run without them. We just have to make sure that we are taking lessons from the past,” Tracy Zambory remarked, the president of the Saskatchewan Union of Nurses.

SHA has been very vocal about the importance of the Filipino workforce to their health care system. SHA conducted a massive hiring spree in the Philippines in 2008 and the years that followed. Unfortunately, some that were hired eventually ended up leaving due to unpreparedness for the shifting environment and the country’s declining economy.

SHA also added that they are taking the necessary steps this time to ensure that their new Filipino hires feel better and adjust better as they work for them in Canada.
