On June 14, 2022, the Government of Canada announced that as of June 20, 2022, it will suspend vaccination requirements for federal government employees.  This decision followed a review of the current public health situation, including the evolution of the virus and vaccination rates in Canada. As a result, and consistent with the Government of Canada decision, CMHC has suspended its Vaccination Policy, effective June 20, 2022.
