“using camp canada has made my life so much easier…”

- Drew ‘Pike’ Black, Director, Camp Muskoka

"As a Camp Director in Ontario, I have always found that acquiring individuals from abroad to become part of our summer counsellor staff team has been an amazing, positive experience, not only toward me as an employer, but also for staff and campers. They bring with them their diversity to our camp, and inspire learning from everyone at camp to discover people from around the world, their cultures, their different work styles, and their passions. Not only do these individuals commit to one summer, but they experience camp in Canada and LOVE the experience that they want to come back for more summers – and a camp can continue to hire them year over year.

I used to hire these international individuals directly, without the use of an agency, like Camp Canada. Staying on top of the Canadian Government updates and changes to foreign worker policies is not an easy task. Not being able to build a relationship with Government and Border officials is also problematic if there ever was a problem, upon entering Canada. Many Camp Directors know that when counsellor staff are arriving at Camp, there is so much going on such as finalising staff training schedules, staff settling into accommodations, and simply meeting and greeting staff as they arrive – and when a call comes in when there is a problem at the border – this can derail your day.

Using Camp Canada has made my life so much easier and provides me and these individuals with confidence that work permits will be issued problem-free. They provide personalised support and expertise for the camp and for the individuals to assist where needed with the entire process, as well as provide further confidence with employers knowing that Camp Canada stays up to date on hiring policies with the Government, advocate to the Government for the ability for Camps to hire these individuals, and have expertise to support all parties involved if a problem occurs at when arriving to Canada. I can focus on managing the camp to provide an amazing experience for our staff and campers, while feeling the utmost confidence in Camp Canada to ensure my direct hires are legally allowed to work in Canada, have all the necessary documents and coverages, and arrive at Camp stress free.
