Jamaican farm workers leave for Canada
2013-01-02 09:10:39 | (0 Comments)
Jamaica will tomorrow send off its first set of farm workers to Canada for the year 2013.
The more than 100 farm workers are to be addressed by Minister of Labour and Social Security, Derrick Kellier, at a function at his ministry's Overseas Employment Services Centre before their departure.
The send-off marks continuing efforts by the ministry to take advantage of employment opportunities overseas and to expand the scope of the Canadian Overseas Farm and Factories Programme.
The programme began more than 40 years ago.
Each year about 6,000 Jamaican workers go to Canada to work on farms.
