Speaking on the ongoing repatriation process, the Minister responsible for External Affairs, the Honourable Sarah Flood-Beaubrun noted that the coordination of these efforts have been a success only because of the full engagement of the team managing the repatriation process.  “I wish to express our gratitude to Canada and High Commissioner Marie Legault, for affording Saint Lucia the opportunity to have our nationals join Barbadians on the flight to that country”, commented the Minister.  The WestJet flight was being dispatched to Barbados to repatriate Canadians still in the region. 

The Minister also thanks the Government of Barbados for facilitating the transfer of our nationals, including those at the University of the West Indies who will join the charter, through their borders.  She also thanked her team within the Department and the overseas offices involved in coordinating the process.  

The Department and the Government continue to look at ways to facilitate the repatriation of other nationals who wish to return home.  Nationals who are desirous of returning home are reminded to contact the nearest Saint Lucian Embassy and Consulate, along with the office for Diaspora Affairs.
