Is It Easier to Migrate to Canada from Hong Kong?

Posted on May 28, 2006. Filed under: Hong Kong, OFW |

If you’re a nanny, yes! There’s no stronger proof for this fact than seeing it for yourself. I have seen and am seeing it myself. I have so many domestic helper friends who have left Hong Kong for Canada.

Filipino newspapers here in Hong Kong are plastered with ads selling their services if you want to make the move. Many of these ads claim guaranteed employment or deployment in so many months with so little expense. Reality however is different. Not all have been lucky.

There is no statistic to prove which is the truth, but as I have mentioned earlier, it is easier for Hong Kong domestic helpers to move to Canada as a nanny. The logical reason is that once you’ve worked in Hong Kong for at least one year, you’ve been trained well to become an effective nanny in Canada.

But as usual, not all “training programs” are the same. Helpers with experience in taking care of children and toddlers, also advanced in aged ones easily find a sponsor or employer from Canada.

I’ll ask some of my friends who are about to leave for Canada what they have done, what the process entailed, how much they spent, and how long they’ve waited.

I also have some feedback coming from Canada. Mostly the news is positive, but there are also some bad ones. Many became landed immigrants, then citizens. Some have been sent back home.

However, a disturbing trend was also seen. To hasten deployment to Canada, some agency hire bogus “employers” to sign the sponsorship/employment documents, but when the nanny arrives in Canada, they will be “released” (almost like in Hong Kong). The only good thing about this arrangement is that the nanny doesn’t have to go back home to the Philippines. They’re free to find and work for a different employer. I believe there are still some limitations, but I haven’t heard of anybody yet sent home to the Philippines because she couldn’t find a new employer.

It’s another one of those things where the Filipino ingenuity to find loopholes can be seen. A shortcut here and there to achieve the end-purpose of living a good life in Canada. Along the way, some people earn money at the behest of somebody else.

So if you want to go to Canada by way of Hong Kong, be careful to deal only with those whom you know are legitimate. Don’t get swayed with too good to be true promises, be smart. And you’ll be fine, most of the time!

Hi im rizel bombarda and i want to apply as a nanny in canada u have agency here in hongkong?

Bush and the Republicans were not protecting us on 9-11, and we aren’t a lot safer now. We may be more afraid due to george bush, but are we safer? Being fearful does not necessarily make one safer. Fear can cause people to hide and cower. What do you think? What is he doing to us, and what is he doing to the world?
If ever there was ever a time in our nation’s history that called for a change, this is it!
We have lost friends and influenced no one. No wonder most of the world thinks we suck. Thanks to what george bush has done to our country during the past three years, we do!

Hi, i heard that it is easier to work in the Canada if you have experience as a nanny in Hongkong? Is is true. I am a graduate of caregiver here in the Philippines and also a 4-year course graduate. Please enlighten me. Please email me.Thank you.

Hi Cristina,
As I’ve written in this post, the answer is yes, it is easier to migrate (as a nanny, caregiver) to Canada if you have worked here in Hong Kong.

It looks like you’re the perfect “caregiver” because you’re a college graduate and have a care giving course too. So if that’s what you really want to do, then Hong Kong is a good stepping stone.

Processing time has increased… potentially 5months for a TRV to be issued from HK.

Candidate must have one year residency and one year experience with one employer otherwise application will be refused.

Signed in only with no jobs upon arrival are increasing. If you arrive in Canada without a job — it will be difficult for you to find a new one without, agency or previous employer support. No reason for this, as your agency has plenty of time to find you a replacement while waiting for you.

I always advice others to talk with their friends who have successfully gone to Canada already. Find out how they did it, which agency, etc.

There’s so many agencies now offering services that it’s also easy to go wrong….so be careful. Go with what you know.
