Suspension of mandatory vaccination requirements for federal employees

The Government of Canada announced it will suspend mandatory vaccination requirements for public servants, effective June 20, 2022. Crown corporations and separate employers were asked to do the same, so the NRC is suspending its mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy on the same date.
