Labour Canada launches consultation on mandatory vaccination for federally-regulated workplaces

December 7, 2021

Today the Minister of Labour, Seamus O’Regan Jr., announced that the Government of Canada will propose regulations under Part II of the Canada Labour Code to make vaccination mandatory in federally regulated workplaces. These regulations would complement existing occupational health and safety measures to protect against the risk of COVID-19 transmission in the workplace. The Government will consult with key stakeholders, including representatives of small and medium-sized employers to finalize the new regulations, which would come into force in early 2022.

The CER encourages industry to participate in the Government’s consultation process.
