Alberta jobs, for Mexican Citizens only

A Calgary-based company advertises jobs in Alberta that are only open to Mexican Citizens, the employer’s website shows.

Mexi-Can Labour Force Inc is currently advertising a number of positions for tradespersons and related skilled workers that are “Sólo para ciudadanos Mexicanos” – only For Mexican Citizens.


The company has been approved by the government to hire temporary foreign workers, information received from Employment and Social Development Canada as a response an Access to Information Act request shows.

  1. The ad is for a vacuum truck operator which there is most definitely a huge shortage of in Alberta right now. If you want this job, which is generally an unskilled position (i.e. no special education required) then I really would encourage anyone to come to Alberta because I can almost guarantee that you will be hired pretty much immediately at any Vac Truck company for this type of position.

  2. Not complete  |  

    The other side of this issue is that these employers and their buddies are making money on the rent they charge TFWs to live in their accommodations. It’s a clawback, and I bet they aren’t claiming the rental income. I suggest people start reporting these landlords to the CRA.

    • I know of a employer that owns a house and has 12 Mexicans staying in it…… 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and charges them 600 per month EACH, that is $ 7200.00 per month…….and told them next year the rent might go up to 7 or 800 cause the water bill is high….. WTF, talk about ripping off the Mexicans

  3. @ Bob **Don’t be too quick to assume that there is a shortage of people who would apply for a vac truck operator. Those 80 jobs on kijiji are not screened as you have also included the workers wanted to vac hotel rooms! And, those who are Looking For Work.

    The whole program has become so entrenched and was without oversight so we tend to moralize without thinking analytically or critically.
    One of the talking points (talking points being a ‘meme’ that the gov’t creates and then we the sheeple repeat ad nauseum) is that Canadian workers are lazy or too entitled and the other is that there are sooooo many jobs that need to be filled. Careful on those talking points.

  4. @Bob As well, even a vac labourer needs all the their tickets to even get on site. It is that 3000 bucks or so that the employer snaffled from Canada’s EI monies to train new workers. Subsidies that we paid for to train TFW’s when there are people here whom could certainly use those tickets to try to gain employment.

  5. A posting looking for Mexican workers! Something like the mine in BC needing Maderine speaking working. What a load of shit. To many employers taking advantage of the TFW program! Get rid of the TFW program!

  6. Why aren’t Canadians protesting? Other countries protest for what they believe in!! I am 64 and cannot believe what this country has become in not supporting the Canadians who are born here!!!

  7. If they are asking for Mexican citizen only it’s because its harder to get a Colombian or Argentinan citizen to apply for this jobs when the recruiting agency is located in Mexico city. Even for Mexicans living outside Mexico city the process would be very expensive and time consuming. Its not about race Its about a business trying to make a buck. Alberta is doing pretty good when it comes to Economy and I believe the opportunities are out there but you have to be willing to work for it. Anybody can drive a truck but nobody is willing to do that (very hard work. Extended hours with no overtime. No family life etc.)

    2.- they hire mexican´s because we understand the needs and they understand that we need the money not because we are cheap because we win the same as a any o you guys we do understand our rights and but we also understand that you guy have different rules
    3.- they hire mexican´s because we are better and we do cover all the expectations of the position
