The company has to prove it by showing that they've advertised the job nationally (copies of adverts placed etc) and then giving info on who has applied and why they were not suitable.

Re: timeline, it depends on the province, but LMO's seem to be taking around 12 weeks at the mo on average.

HTH.

To be honest I'm not entirely certain about the summer camp LMOs , I have a feeling there's quite a lot of exceptions given to them, otherwise things like the BUNAC Camp USA (don't be fooled by the name - they also have Canadian camps) or Nyquest wouldn't be able to get work permits for their applicants.

By the way, not saying that this is the route to take, and working at summer camps is hard work, long hours, and lots of pesky kids. Just trying to show that there are options out there if you can think outside of the box (but within the legal box lol)
