Wednesday, September 22, 2010


As a result of the renewed Memorandum of Agreement between the Philippines and Manitoba, Canada concerning cooperation in human resource deployment and development, more Filipino workers will have opportunity to work in Canada. It is projected that 20,000 workers will be needed yearly in Manitoba by 2016 due to it's to its low birth rate and aging population.

Labor Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz and Manitoba Premier Greg Selinger signed the agreement at the Makati Shangri-La Hotel which provides a framework of partnership in the recruitment of skilled OFWs to Manitoba, as well as in their protection and their skills development.

"For us, it's an equal partnership. Nobody's better than the other," Selinger said.

Due to its low birth rate and aging population, Manitoba will need around 20,000 new workers annually by 2016, according to Baldoz.
