The Philippines is the third-largest source of new immigrants to Canada according to 2020 data. But even long before, fulfilling the most sought-after Canadian dream has always been the talk of the town. There are several pathways that you can take to be able to go to Canada. However, the recent change in the educational system of the Philippines from 10 to 12 years may have also brought an adjustment on the career goals of Filipino students.
We have invited Theresa Redula, a Reporter from OMNI News Filipino Edition, to share her journey to Canada as a Senior High School Graduate from the Philippines. What are the differences between studying in the Philippines and Canada? How did she land a job? How does it feel to be working in the media industry? These are just some of the things we’ll learn plus her tips for newcomers in Canada! Whether you’re still dreaming to study and work in Canada or you have been here for a long, there’s always something new and inspiring from a fellow kababayan abroad.
