COVID-19 vaccination requirements for Government of Canada contractors

Public Services and Procurement Canada logo

The Government of Canada requires that all public service employees be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to access federal government facilities. This approach will ensure that federal workplaces are kept safe and that employees who work in them are protected.

In support of this policy, the Government also requires any contracted personnel accessing federal government workplaces to be fully vaccinated. This requirement takes effect on November 15, 2021, in order to provide all government contractors and subcontractors whose work may require access to federal workplaces time to ensure their employees are aware of this requirement and are able to comply with it. The Government of Canada will provide further information and instructions regarding the implementation of the vaccination requirement for contracted personnel shortly.

Information about this requirement can be found in the Notice to Federal Contractors on, and additional details are available at COVID-19 vaccination requirement for supplier personnel.
