REGINA, SK — At a Labour Mobility Conference held on Wednesday October 28, 2015 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Conference Centre, The Saskatchewan Hotel and Hospitality Association entered into an agreement with the Solomon Islands' Guadalcanal province to facilitate the entry of recent graduates enabling them to gain valuable work experience in Saskatchewan.

The Saskatchewan Hotel and Hospitality Association (SHHA) will provide opportunities in Saskatchewan, in a temporary capacity, to the graduates of the Hospitality Program from Guadalcanal Province, allowing them to gain valuable experience in the tourism and service industry.

Through the educational partnership between Guadalcanal Province and Canadian International Training & Education Corp (CITREC) there has been training in the Hospitality Sector happening right in Solomon Islands. It is these job ready students who are seeking to expand their learning opportunities with work in Canada.

Partners in this initiative include:

Canadian International Training & Education Corp. (CITREC)

Saskatchewan Hotel and Hospitality Association (SHHA)

Saskatoon Immigration & Employment Consulting Services Inc. (SIECSI)

Consulate General of Solomon Islands to Canada
