Canada updated instructions for residential summer camp counsellors
On July 18, 2022, the Government of Canada updated instructions and guidelines for residential summer camp counsellors coming to Canada under the International Mobility Program (IMP). Since all applications for residential camp counsellors are being processed under the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) exemption code C20, even for applicants going to religious camps, all the guidelines have been consolidated. In addition, instructions regarding the unique work situations have been deleted for camp counsellors in training arriving in Canada under the IMP.
