CMSD82 Is Hiring – Join our Team – November 8, 2021
The Advisory Committee established by the Ministry of Education on October 5, 2021, has completed a final draft version of a set of guidelines to support boards and independent school authorities who may be considering implementing a vaccine mandate for staff.
For clarity, these guidelines are for policies being contemplated for employees only, which should be interpreted broadly to include any employee of the board or authority, including contracted employees, regardless of classification or location. The Ministry of Education fully respects the authority of individual First Nations to make decisions about the operation of First Nations schools in the best interests of their students, schools, and communities.
To view and/or familiarize yourself with these guidelines in advance of the final copy being distributed as soon as possible, please access the following link:
