“We will do our best when we step into Canada, we will prove to them that we Guadalcanal people are good people and hardworking, we will make you proud and also make them proud.” These are the words of Mr. Howel Dili when delivering his words of acknowledgment to Guadalcanal Premier Hon. Anthony Veke this week when he and Mr. Mark A Rausake were handed their official documents.

Mr. Dili and Raukesa are heading to Canada coming Saturday 19th under the newly rolled out Agricultural Stream program.

Premier Veke handed the duo their official documents which include their contract, tickets and electronic travel authorization status at the Guadalcanal Provincial headquarters Thursday this week.

“Congratulation and look after your documents well, these are your documents that will get your to Canada. When you arrive in Canada, be good ambassadors and pride of Guadalcanal Province, this is the same takeaway message I always gave our workers going to Canada” Premier Veke told them.

The handing over ceremony was done via skype video-chat technology witnessed from the other side by CITREC Chairman Mr. Ashwant Dwivedi and Solomon Islands High Commissioner to Canada His Excellency Robert Sisiolo.

Premier Veke thanked and welcomed H.E Sisiolo for availing his time to witness the process GP and CITREC normally do. He further thanked His Excellency for visiting current and potential employers and Guadalcanal workers in Canada. Veke described the visit as very significant and will propel the partnership to new heights.

CITREC Chairman Mr. Dwivedi told Premier Veke and GP-officials present that H.E Sisiolo is on a tour visit to meet with employers and also to promote and strengthen the labor mobility program. They have already toured a 20 acre Green House flower nursery and an accommodation facility by Canadian Immigration Counsel.
