Ministry distances itself from false farm programme Facebook page

Members of the public are advised that the Facebook Page entitled “Farm Program” (@hiredmejob) is not affiliated with the Ministry of Labour and Small Enterprise Development.

The Farm Programme Unit, which falls under the Manpower Division of the Ministry, is responsible for the temporary recruitment and selection of workers for a specific period throughout the year on Canadian Farms in the Provinces of Ontario and Alberta.

This Programme is facilitated through a bilateral administrative agreement between the Governments of Canada and Trinidad and Tobago which sets out the parameters of employment for both employer and employee and is reviewed annually through discussions and negotiations.

Citizens are urged to desist from interacting with this Facebook Page or adhering to any instructions that the page provides.

More information on the Farm Programme can be found on the Ministry’s website using the following link:
