We’ve compiled frequently asked questions to provide AJC members with as much information and AJC union advice as possible on the mandatory vaccination policy in the workplace. If you have any other questions or concerns about COVID-19 and the government’s vaccination policy and your rights as a unionized employee, please reach out to your regional Governing Council representative.

What is the status of the federal government’s mandatory vaccination policy?

The Government of Canada’s mandatory vaccination policy came into effect on October 6th 2021, mandating Covid-19 vaccinations for all employees in federally regulated workplaces, including AJC members, regardless of whether they work onsite, remotely, or telework. 

Federal public service employees must attest to being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by Friday, October 29, 2021.
