Nursing Job Recruitment for Canada: Staffhouse Partners with Manitoba, Canada

Staffhouse International Resources has partnered once again with the Government of Manitoba, Canada, for a five-day recruitment drive in Metro Manila, Cebu, and Iloilo to help hundreds of internationally educated nurses (IENs) and other healthcare providers in the Philippines land work opportunities in Canada.

The company held the drive on Feb. 21-25 and helped the province’s healthcare employer’s interview prospective employees, particularly IENs, who met two main nurse requirements for Canada:

● A minimum two-year experience in a hospital (acute medicine) or nursing home (care of the elderly)
● An internationally recognized English language test like the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) or Canadian English Language Benchmark Assessment for Nurses (CELBAN).

Manitoba’s healthcare employers also had the opportunity to provide conditional employment offers based on applicant qualifications.

Under the agreement between Staffhouse and the Manitoba government, successful applicants are entitled to the following supports:

● Assistance navigating the immigration process
● Paid licensing and bridging education where necessary
● Paid travel to Manitoba
● Accommodation allowance
● Workplace orientation, mentorship, and one-to-one support

Through these assistance efforts, Staffhouse and the Manitoba government aim to streamline the application process and make it easier for recruits to learn how to become a nurse in Canada from the Philippines.

Manitoba Health Minister Audrey Gordon explained that the local government is working with the College of Registered Nurses of Manitoba and the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Manitoba (CLPNM) to reduce barriers to entry for IENs while maintaining requirements necessary for care and safety.

Jon Reyes, Minister of Labour and Immigration, added that Manitoba could attract IENs in the Philippines, with many Filipino immigrants already settling in communities across the province.

“I’m very proud to be a member of Manitoba’s large and dynamic Filipino community and long history of recruiting healthcare providers from the Philippines. The community and history in this province are vital to our recruitment of new Filipino healthcare providers who want to build a stronger future for themselves and their families,” said Reyes.

Staffhouse is the Top Recruitment Agency for Canada in the Philippines

Aside from Manitoba, Staffhouse also recently worked with the Government of New Brunswick, Canada, to recruit Filipino IENs. They held a healthcare recruitment fair in Manila and Cebu on Feb. 18-22 to bring more highly-skilled nurses from the Philippines to the Canadian province.

Staffhouse’s efforts to help nurses in the Philippines land jobs come as the country continuously fills its healthcare workforce to meet demand. These partnerships with Canadian government aim to strengthen the employment collaboration between Philippine and Canada healthcare industries. The job fairs features information sessions to open new employment opportunities for Filipino nursing hopefuls.

Aside from healthcare workers, Staffhouse has been recruiting Filipinos in other industries since 1999 to fill job vacancies in various parts of Canada. They have deployed thousands of Filipino workers in construction, engineering, food and beverage, hospitality, automotive, and retail, making them the top recruitment agency for Canada in the Philippines.
