Canadian Businesses will see more Solomon Islanders in their hotel and tourism industry after it was announced that seven more Guadalcanal CITREC graduates would be making their way to Canada to be employed by a major international hotel chain when the seasonal worker hiring begins early next year.
Canadian International Training & Education Corp Chairman Ashwant Dwivedi told Canadian media during a conference that a major international hotel chain has decided to hire seven more Guadalcanal CITREC graduates on an on-going basis for the next five years.
A statement from CITREC said the international hotel chain has asked that its details not be released, allowing government process being completed in a fair manner.
Meanwhile, CITREC Chair Mr. Dwivedi said once the Canada Government has made its decision, those short-listed GP graduates will be confirmed to their appointment and the hiring process will begin.
He said this is the same process the two current GP graduates underwent who are employed in Canada, adding, they want to ensure the contract offered by the Canadian hotel chain to GP graduates meet or exceeds Canadian labour laws especially in regarding salary, compensation, and other associated benefits.
The CITREC Chair adds it is very important that Government of Canada through its Ministry of Labour is a party to the contract as it will bind and protect the rights of the employer and employee.
