Nine People from three separate provinces are heading to Canada under an arrangement that has set new records in Canada’s Labour Mobility partnership with the Solomon Islands.

Of the nine people travelling, four will be travelling to Canada under the Permanent Residence stream whilst five will be admitted into Canada as Temporary Foreign Workers under Canada’s Agriculture Management arrangement where they will be issued with 24-month work permits.

Canada’s Permanent Residence Stream has recently become an attractive feature to Solomon Islanders – the first to be made available to Solomon Islands under the Labour mobility arrangement.

In the past year since it was launched the Permanent Residency Stream has seen many CITREC-Guadalcanal Province graduates enter Canada under this arrangement.

CITREC Canada Chairman Mr Ashwant Dwivedi announced the nine people will be the largest number that will be processed for Canadian visa’s in one day.

He said all are scheduled to arrive in one flight next week from the Solomon Islands.

Mr Dwivedi said that this would be the first opportunity where Canada will be admitting Makira Ulawa persons into the Labour mobility sector through seasonal employment.
