More Jamaicans off to Canada of part of work programme
Another group of Jamaicans will leave the island tomorrow (April 25) to participate in the Canadian Farm Work Programme.
The 193 workers will be involved in the reaping of fruits, vegetables, tobacco and the production and development of greenhouses.
Most of the workers are returning to the programme.
2,813 workers have gone on the Canadian Programme since January.
Labour Minister Derrick Kellier has urged the workers to perform well, as this will benefit other Jamaicans, seeking to be part of the farm work programme.
