They themselves should become their own lookout during their job hunting to avoid falling victims,? Baldoz said. Baldoz said the DFA report showed that website operators are using the Canada woodmark or Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) logo without legal permission. The report also clarified that accredited immigration consultants, lawyers, Quebec notaries, and paralegals are the only authorized entities who may charge fees to jobseekers. In the 2011 report of the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA), the country deployed an increased 15,658 documented OFWs in 2011 compared to the 13,885 workers in 2010. ]]>
