Government announcement on mandatory vaccination against COVID-19

As you know, on October 6, the federal government announced a new policy requiring mandatory vaccination against COVID-19 for federal public service employees. This does not yet apply to CFIA officially for another 30 days.

PSAC has issued a response to this announcement.  PSAC has also published a FAQ entitled “Your rights at work: Vaccinations and COVID-19”.

If you have concerns and require assistance, please feel free to reach out to your local president. A list of local presidents, by region, can be found here.

This is a friendly reminder to be respectful to one another about the vaccination status of others. We want to prevent singling out those who have not been vaccinated for legitimate reasons including those who are immunocompromised or have certain health conditions.

We will provide you with more information as it becomes available.

In solidarity,


Milton Dyck
National President
Agriculture Union
