COVID-19 Related Updates

Update: November 2021

Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) is committed to the protection of the health and safety of all stakeholders and will ensure that every reasonable precaution is taken to protect them from the hazard of COVID-19. In accordance with direction from public health authorities, a key element to the protection against COVID-19 is to maximize COVID-19 vaccination rates. Vaccines are one of the critical control measures for the hazard of COVID-19.

As such, TRCA has introduced a COVID-19 Vaccination for Contractors Policy. Effective November 29, 2021, this Policy outlines the requirements pertaining to COVID-19 vaccination for contractors that work, in certain situations, with TRCA stakeholders.

Where this Policy applies, all TRCA contractors are required to assign individuals who are fully vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine series to perform contract requirements. TRCA requires a written attestation that assigned individuals have been vaccinated. Contractors that fail to comply with this Policy will be subject to the TRCA exercising its available contractual rights, up to and including termination of the contract.
