The Department of Migrant Workers (DMW) suspended the operation of a consulting firm in Mandaluyong on Thursday, April 25.

The suspension was imposed after learning that the immigration consultancy firm, identified as Dream Pathway, was illegally offering jobs in Canada.

Dream Pathway's head office in Mandaluyong City was padlocked through the Migrant Workers Protection Bureau and in coordination with local government and police officers.

The consulting firm's branches in Cabanatuan City, Nueva Ecija; Apalit, Pampanga; and Lipa City, Batangas were also shut down.


Dream Pathway was recruiting jobs such as nurses, caregivers, nursing aides, and welders.

"Dream Pathway is among the unauthorized entities taking advantage of Canada’s immigration programs, which are being used as a doorway to Canada for temporary work before reaching permanent residency," said DMW Officer-in-Charge Hans Leo Cacdac.

"Aside from not securing a proper license from the DMW, they are charging exorbitant processing fees to hopeful applicants," he noted.

In line with this, Cacdac ordered filing of illegal recruitment charges against Dream Pathway and urged those who fell into the firm's fraud to contact the DMW for assistance in filing cases against the agency.


The DMW reminded Filipinos bound for employment as migrant workers in Canada to undergo proper document verification and processing for legal documentation.
