Update to the instructions on charitable or religious work and on the authorization for clergy to work without a work permit


Changes were made to the instructions to clarify that the assessment of remuneration only applies to the cost recovery fee exemption and does not apply to the assessment of whether the work is of a religious or charitable nature as per the Federal Court decision Hashmi v. Canada. Additional changes were made to clarify that clergy normally assessed under R186(l) may apply for work permits under R205(d) charitable or religious work.
