Defence Team COVID-19 FAQs

COVID-19: The Government of Canada requires federal public service employees be fully vaccinated. This includes the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF).

In light of the announcement made October 6, 2021, the Government of Canada requires COVID-19 vaccinations for Defence Team public servants (including student, term and casual employees). In accordance with GC direction, the CAF will implement the CDS Directive on CAF COVID-19 Vaccination. For those few who are unable to be vaccinated, accommodation or alternative measures may be determined in each situation, to protect broader public health by reducing the risk of COVID-19. As further details unfold, they will be communicated.

All Defence Team members are to continue respecting local public health measures, including mask wearing, physical distancing, and frequent hand washing.
