After winning the 2017 competition hosted by the Canadian High Commission, two young people were given the opportunity to experience a day in the life of the High Commissioner,

Nineteen-year-old Antiguan, Rose-Marie Reynolds, and 16-year-old Christopher Brathwaite from Barbados, placed first and second respectively, which led them to hold the posts of High Commissioner and Deputy High Commissioner. The competition, which was held to raise awareness of women’s issues, was such a success last year; the High Commission of Canada has decided to run it again!

The competition has officially been launched this week and young persons between the ages of 16 and 19 from Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Grenada, Dominica, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia and St. Vincent and the Grenadines are invited to send a 60-90 second video, telling the High Commission of Canada how they can become a champion for women’s rights in the region.

The winners will assume the role of High Commissioner and Deputy High Commissioner of Canada on Thursday, 8 March 2018, which is also International Women’s Day.

About The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States

Back to www.oecs.int

The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) is an International Organisation dedicated to economic harmonisation and integration, protection of human and legal rights, and the encouragement of good governance among independent and non-independent countries in the Eastern Caribbean. The OECS came into being on June 18th 1981, when seven Eastern Caribbean countries signed a treaty agreeing to cooperate with each other while promoting unity and solidarity among its Members. The Treaty became known as the Treaty of Basseterre, so named in honour of the capital city of St. Kitts and Nevis where it was signed. The OECS today, currently has eleven members, spread across the Eastern Caribbean comprising Antigua and Barbuda, Commonwealth of Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, St Vincent and The Grenadines, British Virgin Islands, Anguilla, Martinique and Guadeloupe.
