Looking for greener pastures outside the country? Then you're in luck, as the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) announced on September 8 that there are about 2,000 job opportunities waiting for skilled Filipinos in Yukon, the westernmost territory of Canada. Moreover, Canada also offers accepted workers the chance to bring their families into the country.


Openings are available for Filipino call center agents, caregivers, chefs, cooks, engineers, nurses, and heavy equipment operators, among others. Salaries go from P80,000 to P300,000. English proficiency and a degree related to the job are a must.

In a release on DOLE's official website, Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III noted that he has already "directed Administrator Bernard Olalia of the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) to fast-track the deployment of workers to Yukon, as well as the processing of Overseas Employment Certificate (OEC) of those who will be working in Vancouver and Toronto."

Not familiar with Yukon? Here are some of the things you can expect and experience from this side of Canada:

Nature, nature, nature

Yukon is home to a lot of national parks, trekking trails, diverse wildlife, and more. There's something for everyone, whether you're into relaxing while taking in nature or going out on an adventure.


Midnight sun

The sun stays up long after you've gone to bed, and for some, it's a good time for a long drive!

Northern lights

If you've always wanted to experience Aurora Borealis, then this is one place to be.

A community supportive of Fiipinos

There are about 3,000 Filipinos out of the 20,000 citizens of Yukon, and many work in the city of Whitehorse, which welcomes kababayan with open arms.
