The list of companies mandating vaccinations for employees in order to enter the workplace continues to grow in Canada.
Canada’s biggest banks – including RBC, TD, Scotiabank, BMO and CIBC – will all require that staff provide proof-of-vaccination in order to work from their offices. Rogers has also said it will mandate vaccines for employees, and this week Air Canada introduced a mandatory vaccination policy for all workers and new hires. The airline will not offer testing as an accommodation for unvaccinated employees, and said that failure to comply with the new policy could result in unpaid leave or termination.
On this episode of Crisis Management, Alicja Siekierska and the Public Policy Forum’s Sean Speer dig into vaccine mandates, and what role the government may have played in accelerating these policies in corporate Canada.
