[Press Release] The Labour Department has been notified of a “false advertisement” currently in circulation on social media and other platforms, indicating that the department is currently accepting applications for the Canadian Farm Worker Programme.
The Labour Department has been swamped with scores of citizens in recent days seeking to register in response to the false notice.
Citizens are informed that the Department of Labour is currently not in the process of accepting new applicants to the programme. The department currently has a database of over five hundred citizens registered for the programme. This database is the first point for consideration in the event new opportunities become available.
However, labour officials under the stewardship of Labour Minister Honorable Stephenson King are working feverishly with existing and prospective employers for additional opportunities for Saint Lucians.
The Labour Department takes the opportunity to thank employers and all citizens for continuous support.
“Rest assured we will continue working for you”.
