Postsecondary institutions implement mandatory vaccinations, continue discussion

August 17, 2021
Several more postsecondary institutions announced their mandatory vaccine policies recently. In Ontario, Georgian College, St Clair College, and Brock University have joined the growing number of postsecondary institutions mandating vaccines for those who will be on campus. In Saskatchewan, the University of Saskatchewan and the University of Regina have announced that staff and students who will be on campus must be vaccinated, or take COVID-19 tests or rapid antigen tests. The Times Colonist reports that other postsecondary institutions across Canada are continuing to discuss implementing mandatory vaccinations, with the president of the University of Victoria and the president of University of British Columbia voicing support for it, and some University of Winnipeg faculty members requesting that administrators implement mandatory vaccinations.
