The federal government has implemented a mandatory vaccination policy for public servants and all contractor personnel who access Government of Canada workplaces. As an employee or independent contractor of Calian performing work for federal government customers of Calian, you will be subject to this mandate.

Calian has a duty to provide and maintain a safe workplace and is contractually obligated to adhere to government mandates, policies and directives. Your employment / independent contractor agreement with Calian will require that you obey all workplace health, safety and security rules and regulations established by Calian or the customer.

Every Calian employee and independent contractor working on Calian customer worksites will be required to complete an attestation before you are employed by Calian, stating that you are Fully vaccinated (full series of a Health Canada-approved vaccine, 14 days have passed since your last dose). This is a mandatory requirement and failure to complete the attestation will result in you being non-compliant for the position and we will therefore be unable to move forward in the hiring process.


Le gouvernement fédéral a mis en place une politique de vaccination obligatoire pour les fonctionnaires et tout le personnel des entrepreneurs qui ont accès aux lieux de travail du gouvernement du Canada. En tant qu'employé ou entrepreneur indépendant de Calian effectuant des travaux pour des clients de Calian appartenant au gouvernement fédéral, vous serez soumis à ce mandat.

Calian a le devoir de fournir et de maintenir un lieu de travail sûr et est contractuellement obligé d'adhérer aux mandats, politiques et directives du gouvernement. Votre contrat d'emploi ou d'entrepreneur indépendant avec Calian exigera que vous respectiez toutes les règles et réglementations en matière de santé, de sécurité et de sûreté sur le lieu de travail établies par Calian ou le client.

Chaque employé de Calian et chaque entrepreneur indépendant travaillant sur les chantiers des clients de Calian devra remplir une attestation avant d'être employé par Calian, indiquant que vous êtes entièrement vacciné (série complète d'un vaccin approuvé par Santé Canada, 14 jours se sont écoulés depuis la dernière dose). Il s'agit d'une exigence obligatoire et si vous ne remplissez pas l'attestation, vous ne serez pas conforme pour le poste et nous ne pourrons donc pas avancer dans le processus d'embauche.
