International Staff

We have had summer staff from all over the world and encourage any staff to apply regardless of the country they are in. Every country is different when it comes to paperwork, and we will work with each international staff to obtain a visa or paperwork, arrange transportation from the airport or into Canada, and anything else needed. An adequate understanding of the English language is needed to be on our summer staff team.


Staff working a minimum of 4 weeks will receive a honorarium between $175 and $255 per week. Room and board is included. Honorariums are paid by cheque at the completion of each contract. Specific times are offered for staff to be able to draw from their honorarium throughout the summer if needed.

All staff will receive an employment agreement once they have been officially accepted as a summer staff member and it is a binding contract between them and Medeba.

Time Off

Time off is a valuable and important part of a healthy staff team. Every staff receives a minimum of 2 hours off a day and a 24 hour period off each week (generally from Saturday at noon until Sunday at noon). Specific times for this time off will vary by position.

Every summer staff is required to be turning 17 by December 2024 or older. Younger than 17? We offer an amazing Leader-in-Training program for those 15-17.
