Fake News: Canada Announces No Visa Policy for Filipino Caregivers

fake newsThis is to correct the false information that has been in circulation on some websites and social media platforms. The Canadian government has NOT announced a “No Visa Policy for Filipino Caregivers”. It is irresponsible for individuals or organizations to be promoting this blatant misinformation.

It appears the false news was started by a website that claims to be associated with Filipinos and so some unsuspecting people are believing it. The website claims that this “No Visa” policy was announced by the Canadian Minister of Citizenship and Immigration, Chris Alexander as part of the major reform to the Caregiver Program in Canada. This is absolutely not true. The minister never made such announcement. Filipino caregivers still need Canadian temporary resident visa to enter Canada.
