Canadian Employment Opportunities for Filipinos in Yukon
The Philippines and Yukon governments have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to make it easier for Filipinos to relocate to the Yukon under the Yukon Nominee Program (YNP). During the same time, Air North signed an agreement with Philippine Airlines, allowing travelers to purchase a single ticket to fly between Manila and Whitehorse, Yukon.
The president of the Canadian Filipino Association of the Yukon said it is now going to be easier for Filipinos to move to the Yukon while reducing costs for employers. There are many opportunities in Canada for you and your family. Contact Canada Immigration Express for information about the immigration process.
The YNP lets companies hire foreign workers for the long-term if there are no qualified Canadians or permanent residents for the job. Filipinos will be better identified and recruited with the new MOU, according to the Canadian government. Under the new deal, fees will not be applied by The Philippines to YNP applications, and it creates a committee for the governments to cooperate on labor mobility.
According to the Yukon minister of economic development, red tape will be reduced for businesses in the Yukon. The Philippines has the most YNP applicants of any other country. Filipinos make up the largest immigrant group in the territory, as reported by the 2016 census. If you are considering immigration to the Yukon, contact Canada Immigration Express. Their team will answer any questions you have and explain the visa application process.
