Trying to find work in a foreign country is a challenge no matter where you are coming from. Since you likely don’t already live in the country where you are trying to find work, you can’t just go out and turn in applications. There may also be a language barrier to get around. Luckily, there are almost certainly resources available to help you through the process.
If you are a Filipino who wants to work in Canada for instance, there are recruitment agencies that help identify which jobs are available in Canada that you might be qualified for and to help you through the process of obtaining the job and relocating. While these agencies are licensed by the government, there are a number of fraudulent companies that are more than happy to take your money and leave you with nothing to show for it. Because of this, your choice of agency is very important.
Here is a list of licensed recruitment agencies with their address and contact details so you can get a start on your search without having to worry about fraud.

There are other licensed agencies available, but we tried to keep our list to those that had an address, email address and website available to make things easier for you as you begin your transition to living and working in Canada. Make sure you double and triple-check that the agency you select is legitimate and you are happy with the services they offer before giving them any personal information or money. You will be glad you did!
Once you are in Canada, you can also download the free Remitbee app, create an account, and send money home to your loved ones and friends back in the Philippines with fees as low as $0. We wish you luck in your search and the process of becoming a Canadian employee!
