Under the Canada-Mexico Partnership, both countries have designed a new Labour Mobility Mechanism (LMM) that will enable Canadian employers to hire Mexican workers, in any sector and in any province, for up-to 4 years. The LMM is a Government-to-Government labour mobility framework to help meet Canada’s increasing demand for labour across diverse sectors and skill levels under the Canadian Temporary Foreign Workers Program (TFWP). In order to facilitate the process, the Mexican Secretariat of Labour and Social and Social Welfare (STPS) has launched  the following website to provide relevant information as well as enabling Canadian employers to register directly their labour needs and start the process at NO COST: temporary-employees.stps.gob.mx

The STPS has plenty of successful experience in selecting and recruiting Mexican workers for Canada via its 165 offices across Mexico. As an example, during 2011 STPS arranged for more than 16,000 workers travel to Canada's agricultural sector and has an extensive database of available candidates for all sectors. The potential candidates will meet the company's needs as all job seekers are required to demonstrate work experience and an appropriate level of English/French.

Premio Ohtli

 

Ottawa, Ontario. September 10, 2011. During the National Day Celebration organized by the Ottawa-Gatineau Mexican community, Ambassador Francisco Barrio, Ambassador of Mexico to Canada, delivered the Ohtli Award to Mrs. Fabiola Yzeta, in recognition of her tireless efforts to improve well-being and facilitate adaptation among the Mexican community in Canada.

The Ohtli Award –from the Nahuatl word meaning ‘path’– is bestowed upon Mexicans who have devoted part of their lives and professional activities to “forging a new path” abroad for their countrymen and women. The award celebrates and acknowledges the value of the altruistic activities the person engages in on a constant basis, to promote the well-being of fellow Mexicans.

The title itself honours and recalls the continued tradition of the Nahuatl, who, keeping their language alive, still bid farewell with the phrase “¡cualli ohtli!” (Happy trails!).

The prize consists of a medallion, a silver rosette, and a diploma signed by the President of the Institute of Mexicans Abroad (IME), an institution that seeks to strengthen Mexico’s relations with its diaspora through countless unity-promoting projects.

Introduction

Our mandate is to promote the economic, commercial and tourism interests of Mexico in Canada. As North American partners, we must strive to improve our competitiveness as a trading bloc and strengthen our economies.

Together with the Mexico Tourism Board, we promote Mexico as one of the primary and most beautiful tourist destinations in the world.

Tourism

México

Mexico is one of the largest and most beautiful tourist destinations in the world. In 2013 it had the pleasure to welcome almost 24 million foreign tourists. If we also consider that 68 million Mexicans travelled within the country, it gives us an excellent picture of the services infrastructure Mexico has to welcome tourists.

Travelling through Mexico is full of surprises, although there is one constant, and that is the people’s passion to serve: faces showing mixed ancestry, frank smiles that welcome the traveller as a long-time friend, so eager to share their traditions and boast about the unique attractions of their home, their Mexico.

Mexico is world renowned for its sun and sand destinations, ranks third in biodiversity, fourth in cultural tourism, is among the planet’s top five countries for the number of World Heritage sites and among the best in terms of warmth and hospitality.
