Kababayan is the Tagalog word for a fellow countrymen; a fellow Filipino.

A Filipino Immigrant’s Realization

Canada has been “home” for our family for a decade now and if I were to go back to that year when I am still deciding whether I should complete our application for skilled immigrant through the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program, I will still take the same path.

To celebrate my work anniversary with my current job, I thought of sharing something that is work-related. After a few years of working in Canada, I had numerous discoveries (and learning) about Canadian workplace, including some work practices that I have learned to adapt in the past 8 years.

It is a challenge for me to get people to agree to have their story be included and published in my blog.

Each welcome pack distribution, I meet different sets of newly-arrived immigrants and every opportunity that I get to have a chat with some of them I always ask them how they are and how they are adjusting to their new home. 

Nine years ago, I came to Canada with a bachelor’s degree, some credits in master’s degree and more than 10 years of work experience as a HR practitioner.
