The Trudeau Liberals officially announced on Wednesday that October 29 will be the deadline for all public servants to be fully vaccinated in order to not be placed on unpaid leave.
These positions include those in the RCMP, federal government departments, correctional services, Canada border services, "and many other offices and agencies."
Those who do not show their proof of vaccination will be placed on administrative leave by November 15.
The announcement, made by Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland, also directs crown corporations and agencies "to implement policies that mirror those we are announcing today."
"The chief of defense staff will issue a directive mandating vaccination for the Canadian Armed Forces, and we are working with employees in federally regulated workplaces," said Freeland.
"The bottom line; proof of vaccination will be required by no later than the end of this month for all federal employees," said Trudeau. "By mid-November, enforcement measures in place will make sure that everyone is vaccinated."
"This is about keeping the people safe on the job, and in their communities. Same goes for the second commitment we made, mandatory vaccination on travel," said Trudeau, said that by October's end, everyone twelve or older on a plane or train within Canada "should be fully vaccinated."
"There will be a short period where people who are in the process of getting vaccinated can show a negative COVID-19 test, but by the end of November, if you're 12 or older and want to fly or take the train, you'll have to be fully vaccinated, as will staff," said Trudeau. "Testing will no longer be an option before boarding."
This is a breaking story and will be updated.
