As a result of the rapidly-evolving COVID-19 situation in the province of Ontario, we are informing you that as of May 10, 2021 all construction workers in the province of Ontario will be eligible for COVID-19 vaccination.  Construction workers have been deemed “essential workers” who cannot work from home and have been prioritized to receive vaccinations.

We suggest that you advise and encourage all your members, that commencing May 10th regardless of geographic location, they book a COVID-19 vaccination appointment.

Workers may access the vaccination Ontario website: https://covid-19.ontario.ca/book-vaccine/ to book an appointment.
