Please be aware that workers destined to Canada under the “Pilot Project for Occupations Requiring Lower Levels of Formal Training (NOC C and D)” are prohibited from paying a recruitment fee, a placement fee or for their transportation costs to Canada. Such payments are solely the responsibility of the employer. Payment of these fees by employees contravenes conditions outlined on the Labour Market Opinion (LMO) rendering it invalid. This may lead to refusal of the application for a Work Permit.
Payment of recruitment fees and placement fees by employees are also illegal according to some provincial laws in Canada, such as the Alberta Fair Trading Act and the British Columbia Employment Standards Act.
If you have paid a fee to a recruiter located in the Philippines or in Canada, it is your responsibility to inform your Canadian employer. You and your employer must ensure the conditions of the Labour Market Opinion and all provincial laws have been respected.
