You are unable to be vaccinated against COVID-19
For employees who are unable to be vaccinated based on a medical contraindication, religion or another prohibited ground of discrimination under the Canadian Human Rights Act, requests for accommodation are assessed by each department on a case-by-case basis, i.e. considering facts and circumstances that may be unique to the individual or the workplace, and always in accordance with the associated Government of Canada policy instruments.
If you are unable to be fully vaccinated, you should:
- inform your manager as soon as possible of your need for accommodation
- provide your manager with the accurate information necessary to identify appropriate accommodation, including information on relevant limitations and restrictions
- cooperate and collaborate in good faith with your organization’s representative(s) to find one or more means to accommodate your needs
- notify your manager if your accommodation needs change
As a Government of Canada employee, you have an obligation to provide true information. Submitting a false statement would constitute a breach of the Values and Ethics Code for the Public Sector and may result in disciplinary action up to and including termination. Managers can ask for more information at any time.
