More Caregiver Agencies in Canada
Last year, I made a hub about Caregiver Agencies in Canada in order to help job seekers find a listing of all the available caregiver agencies in this country. Canada has opened its doors to job seekers and immigrants all over the world and I'm sure millions of people now wants to move to Canada for work or to reside there for good. This hub is intended to list more agencies which are open for caregiver job seekers in Canada. This will also help those people who are looking for a good caregiving agency for their elderly loved ones. I hope this list would be of great help.
In the Philippines, many Filipinos want to find jobs in Canada because of the higher salary rate than when they work in their country alone. Canada, being English speaking in most of its cities is also a great advantage. One of the areas where Filipinos excel is in caring for the sick, infants and elderly. They are also known to be good in medical services, in the hospitality industry, engineering and in many more areas.
Below is an additional list of the caregiving agencies in Canada. You can check every agency and see if it can help you in your job search or for those who are looking for a good and reliable caregiver, for you to find a reliable and responsible caregiver for you loved ones.

If you want to apply for any agency, do your homework first and make sure that that company is a legitimate one. Check on your government public employment office what is that agency's status. There are some agencies that were delisted already or suspended but they still undergo recruitment services. In this case, there will be a big chance that your visa might be denied.
Ask for the agency's references and company owner. Check on their credentials and do your research. The internet would be a great help for you. You can also visit their office and look for certificates from the government as proof that they are a legal recruitment agency.
