Canada’s largest banks said this week they will start requiring employees and staff in their offices to be fully vaccinated. The announcement came a week after the government asked federally regulated industries such as banks telecoms, and airlines to start mandating COVID-19 vaccinations in its employees.
COVID-19 cases are rising in the country and vaccinations have slowed since the pace set earlier this year. TD said today that its policy will require workers to provide proof of vaccination with the bank by September 30. It will then require full vaccinations for all workers entering the offices on or after November 1.
Those who will not disclose their vaccination status or are not fully vaccinated will have to complete a learning course about the benefits of vaccines. They will also have to submit to a mandatory COVID-19 rapid test and wear a mask in any TD buildings. RBC sent a similar memo on Thursday to its employees in Canada and the United States.
