Ontario, Canada is currently in need of 700 additional mushroom pickers due to high demand for mushroom in the country.

According to Ryan Koeslag, president of Mushroom Growers of Canada, they are going to need more mushroom pickers there every year, reported ABS-CBN.

Applicants who have previous agricultural background are favored. They will also undergo training before going on field.

“For those who are willing to work, I think that there are pathways that has been established amd set-up in order to help them become Canadian citizens,” Koeslag said.

Philippine authorities have visited the country to check the potential of the mushroom industry for overseas Filipino workers (OFWs).

Today, many Filipinos are employed in Canada as mushroom pickers. Among them is Renzi Cacnio, who has been working in the farm for one year. Cacnio, in an interview with ABS-CBN, said he earns Php160,000 to Php180,000 there per month.

“Kailangan po magsipag kayo tsaka pag-aralan niyo kung ano yung technique para makapag-pick kayo ng mabilis,” Cacnio said.

Aspiring applicants, however, are advised to check first with the Philippine Overseas Employment Agency (POEA) if a job order for an in-demand job in Canada is existing.
