Guadalcanal province’s partnership with the Saskatchewan Hotel & Hospitality Association (SHHA) and the Canadian International Training & Education Corporation (CITREC Canada) has resulted in Saskatchewan welcoming two families from the Solomon Islands as part of Canada’s Immigration re-unification process.

Leonita Henry accompanied by her son Miyier Volly, touched down at Vancouver International Airport, and was greeted by CITREC Chairman Mr. Ashwant Dwivedi and Immigration officials.

She was joined by her husband, Careka Volly who is employed in Canada as a Restaurant Supervisor. Mr. Volly was accepted into Canada last year under the “Permanent Resident Nomination Program”.

Mr. Volly was a successful candidate of the Canadian employment partnership between the Canadian Tourism Sector Council and Guadalcanal Province, and worked through the summer of 2016 in Saskatchewan at the Waterfront Beach Bar & Grill in Regina Beach, a SHHA member property.

“The SHHA needs to be creative in addressing the requirements of our membership, and the Solomon Islands represent a unique and exciting opportunity to satisfy the needs of both our members and the Government and peoples of the Solomon Islands.” Said SHHA President & CEO, Jim Bence.

“We have proven that our GP-CITREC graduates have the ability to be employed in any sector. This is indeed a very proud moment for the people of Guadalcanal and Solomon Islands,” Mr. Dwivedi said.

Sherri Morrell, Provincial Manager – Saskatchewan  Proximo Canada 

Some beverages are linked to the regions they are from. You can’t go there without sampling a drink or two. Here are three destination-linked drinks to enjoy. 

Singapore Sling - Barman Ngiam Tong Boon created Singapore’s signature drink at the Long Bar in Raffles Hotel around 1915. The hotel catered to a refined British guest and he wanted to develop a drink that would appeal to all patrons. The fruity cocktail is a blend of Boodles London Dry Gin, Cherry Heering, and Benedictine and pineapple juice.

Piña Colada - Barkeep Ramon Marrero developed the piña colada at Puerto Rico’s Caribe Hilton Hotel in 1954. This cocktail is made with Matusalen Rum, cream of coconut and pineapple juice, either blended or shaken with ice, and topped off with a garnish of pineapple.

 Paloma - You may think the Margarita is Mexico’s national drink, but it’s truly the Paloma, made with Jose Cuervo Tequila, grapefruit soda and a wedge of lime in a salt-rimmed glass.

PROXIMO is a global innovator of quality spirits that create excitement with every sip. Their brands include Boodles London Dry Gin, Matusalen Rum and Jose Cuervo Tequila.
