Federal workers must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by the end of the month or be forced into an unpaid leave of absence. Other new rules are also being introduced, such as mandatory vaccination for all air, rail and marine travellers effective Oct. 30.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau unveiled his government’s mandatory vaccine policy today — a mandate that will require public servants to either get their shots by month’s end or be forced into an unpaid leave of absence. All would-be travellers must also be fully vaccinated by Oct. 30 to board planes, trains or marine vessels.
