Young minds becoming business wise

Junior Co-operatives formed within 12 Secondary Schools

Learning how to start a business is an essential process for anyone with plans of becoming an entrepreneur. Venturing into business activity takes not only time and money but requires an understanding of the role of business in society, employing the right business skills and knowledge in order to take risks. Whilst many business owners acquire such knowledge in their adult lives, business operation can be taught to young persons who have dreams of one day becoming artistes, photographers, graphic designers, shopkeepers or any profession that will grant them their economic independence.

Trinidad and Tobago hosts Annual Review of the Commonwealth/Caribbean Seasonal Agricultural Workers’ Programme

Commonwealth/Caribbean Seasonal Agricultural Workers’ Programme (CCSAWP) also known as Farm Programme was conceived as a remedial initiative to provide reliable labour during the short-term peak season in the agricultural industry in Canada. The main feature of the CCSAWP is the organised movement of foreign workers to meet the temporary seasonal needs of Canadian Agricultural Producers during peak harvesting and planting periods when there are traditionally shortages of Canadian workers. 
The Annual Review Meeting which was held at the Trinidad Hilton from December 1-3, 2014, was held for the purpose of examining the Programme’s progress, addressing challenges and determining the way forward. This year's meeting was attended by representatives of the participating Caribbean countries as well as officials from (HRSDC) Human Resource and Skills Development Canada, (CIC) Citizenship and Immigration Canada, Staff of the High Commission for Canada in the hosting state, (F.A.R.M.S) Foreign Agricultural Resource Management Services, (farmers organization in Canada), Canag, the official travel agency of FARMS, the Canadian Horticultural Council, theOntario Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association, and farmers organizations from the provinces of Alberta and British Columbia.
