(CMR) The Ministry of Tourism will no longer manage the stipend program for displaced tourism workers. The Ministry of Border Control and Labour is now responsible for overseeing the program.
As it takes over, the Ministry of Border Control and Labour is encouraging stipend recipients to register with WORC. Persons who have obtained employment are also asked to inform the Ministry.
The Ministry said the program would be reviewed in the coming weeks and additional needs assessment conducted. Recipients will also be informed of new requirements to remain eligible to continue receiving the stipend.
No new applications are being processed, the Ministry said.
