A province in Canada has temporarily closed its doors for Filipino workers who are looking to try their luck as temporary foreign workers.

The province of Alberta issued a two-year ban for temporary foreign workers, including overseas Filipino workers, in 29 high-skilled job categories due to sufficient number of qualified local workers.

“Alberta’s Employer Liaison Service provides enhanced recruitment support to companies looking for high-skilled workers to hire Alberta citizens rather than foreign workers,” a statement from the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) reads.

The service, however, will not terminate contracts that have been issued prior to the program implementation on April 19.

Effective April 19, 2017, Alberta will halt hiring of expats in these job categories:

  1. 1. Human resources managers
  2. 2. Engineering managers
  3. 3. Purchasing agents and officers
  4. 4. Production logistics coordinators
