What is the PAOS?

The Post Arrival Orientation Seminar (PAOS) is an orientation seminar conducted by the POLO at post for newly-arrived OFWs.  In general, the PAOS provides information on the services and programs of the Philippine Embassy, Consulate, the POLO, SSS and other Philippine government agencies at post, as well as basic knowledge on the rights and obligations of these OFWs as temporary residents/workers in the host country.

POLO Toronto conducts PAOS every month.  Originally, PAOS are done at the Office, during outreach or worksite visits.

During the COVID-19 Pandemic, however,  all PAOS are done virtually and POLO Toronto initiated a PAOS for each Province under its jurisdiction with guest Resource Speakers discussing the applicable Employment Standards per Province.

Here are the links to the Recorded PAOS for the following provinces:
