EllisDon and PCL will require Canadian employees working at any location on company business to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 by November 1, 2021.

Canada's largest general contractors, PCL Construction and EllisDon, are implementing vaccination verification requirements in the continued effort to provide safe workplaces for their employees. 

EllisDon and PCL will require Canadian employees working at any location on company business to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 by November 1, 2021. As of this date, testing will not be offered as an alternative to full immunization.

Any employee may request an exemption to the vaccination verification requirement due to proven medical condition(s) and other applicable human rights grounds.

"Being fully vaccinated is the most effective way to reduce the spread of COVID-19," said PCL's President and CEO, Dave Filipchuk. "PCL has instituted strict safety protocols throughout the pandemic, and this vaccination requirement is the next step in our ongoing commitment to keeping employees, clients, business partners and our communities safe. We are especially pleased to participate in this initiative with EllisDon a respected industry peer. It is our hope that most general contractors and subtrade partners across Canada will soon join us."

PCL and EllisDon will continue to comply with existing protocols and rules with respect to physical distancing, masking, screening, rapid testing, personal protective equipment and any other measures intended to reduce the transmission of COVID-19.
