Update on Mandatory Vaccinations for Federally Regulated Workplaces

Earlier today, the Government of Canada made an announcement providing further details on its policy to require all federal public service employees and some federally regulated workplaces to be fully vaccinated and confirmed that the federally regulated trucking sector remains exempt from this requirement.

Today’s announcement also confirms the timeframes for meeting compliance with the vaccination policy by the end of October and provides further details regarding who will be covered by the mandate, and what the roles and responsibilities of employers and operators will be moving forward.

The Government of Canada continues to urge all employers to increase vaccinations within their workforce to help protect all Canadians.
