POLO Toronto regularly conducts Trainings and Seminars which will provide the OFWs under its jurisdiction access to skills upgrade, stress management, self-care and development, as well as basic information on taxation, payroll and financial literacy, among others.

Every month, along with the PAOS, POLO Toronto schedules at least three (3) of these trainings and seminars.  Please check our Website and Facebook Page for updates on the schedules.

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, POLO Toronto’s  trainings and seminars are conducted virtually, usually via Zoom.


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.
