    Questions you need to ask

    where in Canada is recruiting?

    what jobs are they actually offering?

    Alberta, B.C., Ontario, have stopped hiring overseas. SK is cutting back and from what has been said in other threads is also no longer recruiting IEN. Quebec has restrictive language laws. The Maritimes seem to produce enough grads of their own. The Far North is no place for a nurse unfamiliar with the climate, culture, and isolation.

    Canadian new grads are having a hard time finding work. Experienced nurses can't find full time jobs.

    So tread carefully.

    Jazsle:

    I am a Canadian, married to a native of Bohol. Two of our "working students" passed the NLE June 09, so I am looking at options for them to go abroad. In talking to other nurses here, I found out about this Pinoy Care, which some of them signed up with after they attended a seminar.

    In Canada we have a saying - Buyer Beware!, so I am wary of "consultants".

    Can you answer some questions about the seminar?

    1) Did they state what their total charges would be - what was their figure?

    2) What do you get for this money? For example, do they say that they will find you a job as a nurse within x months, and get you a proper visa? (see below)
    3) Did they give out contact information for people they have successfully placed, so you could check up with them?
    The Pinoy Care Visa Center website is under construction, but earlier I was able to carefully look at it. They seem to be tied into a Canadian Immigration Consultancy, Rosenblatt Associates and employment agencies, Caregivers.ca, for one.
    If Pinoy Care gets you a job as a caregiver, there are some possible problems –
    1) Caregivers are not paid nearly as well as nurses.

    2) If you get into Canada on the live-in caregiver program, you may be bound by a two-year contract. If you work as a caregiver for two years, planning to then apply for registration as a nurse, realize that most nursing associations require recent nursing experience before they grant a license. Check the provincial nursing association requirements!

    Canada, like most of the rest of the world, is in recession. Healthcare is a major expense for the government, so they are cutting back. There are hiring freezes, and even layoffs in the health care fields. A lot of care facilities are now hiring LPNs, rather than RNs, because of the lower pay scales.
    So, after all is said and done, the question remains – should you use this agency?
    If you have good answers to the above questions, and not just a lot of double-talk, are able to check with previous clients, and don’t feel up to applying on your own, then I would say, go ahead. What value for money do they provide that you couldn’t do on your own?
    Sorry for the longwinded response, but I hope this gives something to think about.

    The OP stated in the first post that they are helping with an immigrant visa, nothing else. And for that you don't need an agency it's wasted money, especially since for an immigrant visa you need quite a bit of funding and they will want to see proof that the money is there and yours, so you survive the first months without employment.
    It's news to me that the point system is not needed for nurses, I for instance had to provide evidence for my language proficiency, and that was just recent,as a nurse you go under the skilled worker, I'm not aware hat that has changed.

    So I still think to use that agency is wasted money.

    .Hi janel! did you mean to say that its been 6 months since you passed your application to them? all those documents required in the kit? I recently attended their orientation and it's pretty attractive. I'm still undecided whether to take their service or not. thanks!

    Hello Jazsle,

    I am one of the applicants of Pinoycare. I am now under medical because embassy already asked me to do so and also for me to pay the landing fee. In fairness they did a great job in the documentation otherwise I would not be able to reach this stage. Actually, they are not offering any job at all. I have to look for my own job when I get there. All they do is assist in the documentation.I know that they are legitimate company because they have a very nice and big office in cebu and also in davao and manila. So to other applicants, dont worry but just coooperate with them.. Jazsle thanks for the info, more power and see you there soon...
