Thank you for using NYQUEST Camp Canada™ or visiting one of our websites.

Our Privacy Policy is here to help you understand the way we use the data that you share with us. It covers why we collect certain data, how we collect it and what exactly we collect. It also explains how and who we might share your data with and your rights regarding your data.

When we say “we”, “us”, “our” and “NYQUEST” we are referring to NYQUEST Training & Placement Inc. and its subsidies which own and operate the NYQUEST Camp Canada™ brand, trademark and websites.

When we say “you”, “your”, “participant” and “customer” we are referring to either someone who has signed up for a NYQUEST service or is visiting our websites.

NYQUEST does not sell its customer data or mailing lists and will not share your Personal Data with any third party companies for the purposes of direct marketing unless you have explicitly given consent.

This Privacy Policy applies to all NYQUEST websites as well as any other websites that are owned and operated by us.

Our websites and brands:

The Information We Collect

When dealing with our website there are three types of information we collect.

Personal Data

This is data that you voluntarily provide to us and is often information that we need in order for you to take part in a work and travel program, or that may be given to us when you request more information and/or contact us.

Usage Data

This helps us improve our websites and experiences and is often tracked automatically in the background such as your browser type, operating system or device type.

Cookie Data

Cookies are small packets of data which are stored on your computer or mobile device. Cookies are used to make certain features work on our websites as well providing reporting data. (Camp Canada Cookie Policy)

Personal Data

Personal Data is any piece of data that identifies or can be reasonably used to identify you as an individual. We collect Personal Data in a few different ways with the most common being: 

  • When you create an application for one of our work and travel programs;
  • When you request more information about one of our work and travel programs;
  • When you register your interest in one of our programs;
  • When you contact us online;
  • When you voluntarily join our mailing lists;
  • When photos or videos are taken of you at NYQUEST events or at camp to be used for marketing purposes.


When registering for any of our programs we will ask you for information such as your full name, email address, password, date of birth, address, postal code and country. During the application we will also ask you to voluntarily provide further information such as home address, emergency contact details, profile photo, work history and references.

When requesting more information about a program, registering your interest or contacting us online we may ask you for information such as your full name, email address and contact details.

Sensitive Personal Data

Information such as medical or criminal background, passport information and other personal details may be considered “Sensitive Personal Data”.

We use information you provide to us relating to a medical condition, disability or special needs you may have for the purposes of evaluating what suitable support may be available to you and may be required, or whether you may be required to obtain additional insurance to participate in our program, and to share this information with our employees, camp employees and third parties who are directly involved in the application process or the provision of our services to you.

We use information relating to any criminal conviction you may have for the purposes of evaluating your admission to our program, or for evaluating whether to allow you to continue on a program, and to share this information with camp employees and third parties for such purposes.

We collect passport information and your camp placement data in order to comply with the work permit requirements set by Citizenship and Immigration Canada.

This data will only be shared with a camp employer if you are successfully hired at their camp.

Other sensitive Personal Data such as religious background or student status, may be voluntarily given to us in order to help us in the match you with an employer or placement.

If data has been aggregated or anonymised so it is no longer reasonably associated with an identifiable individual it is no longer classified as Personal Data. NYQUEST may use this for any business purpose.

Lawful Basis for Processing Personal Data under GDPR

  • When registering for a NYQUEST program we will rely on Contract as the lawful basis for processing your personal information. As a potential customer registering for a NYQUEST program we will need to process your data in order to provide you with our program services.
  • When signing up to marketing communications or providing us with feedback related to a NYQUEST program we will rely on Consent as the lawful basis for processing. You will be asked explicitly to provide us with consent for marketing communication at the point of registering for a NYQUEST program.
  • When referring you to a 3rd party program provider that you may visit through a NYQUEST website, NYQUEST will rely on Legitimate Interest as our lawful basis for processing.

For more information about lawful basis of processing please visit the ICO website.

Lawful Basis for Processing – Criminal Data

NYQUEST has a lawful basis under Article 6 of GDPR (i.e., contract, legitimate interest) to process data about criminal convictions or offences; the company also has legal authority to do so under Article 10 of GDPR based on data subject consent. A comprehensive register of participant criminal convictions is not kept and any data related to criminal convictions or offences is anonymized when service is complete.
