Cape Breton: Kijiji Right and Service Canada

cape breton: The Farmer's Daughter Market is a busy stop on the Trans-Canada Highway that employs 100 people, according to CBC. With almost the entire staff of university students planning to return to class, Coulombe and her sister thought they might have to shut down their year-round business. In the fall of 2016, the co-owner of the Farmer's Daughter Country Market in Whycocomagh, Cape Breton, couldn't figure out how she would keep her business operating. We started putting ads up on Service Canada and stuff like that, and we weren't getting anyone local, we were getting people from overseas, said Coulombe. So we actually put ads on Kijiji right across the country, but we didn't get anyone there either, she said. We looked into doing immigration and stuff, but that was going to take too long.
