While we at BCCF do not currently have a mandatory COVID-19 vaccine policy in place, many of our clients have enacted mandates that stipulate vaccination requirements be met by both their workers and their contractors. In light of this, some BCCF workers, contractors and volunteers—i.e., those who are or will be conducting work in spaces where our clients’ mandates are enforced—will be required to be fully vaccinated before they will be allowed to enter any of the mandate-affected worksites or risk being prevented from conducting the work, unless a properly supported Human Rights exemption applies.
