The federal government has implemented a mandatory vaccination policy for public servants and all contractor personnel who access Government of Canada workplaces. As an employee of Bluedrop Training & Simulation Inc. (BTSI) performing work for federal government customers of BTSI, you will be subject to this mandate. BTSI has a duty to provide and maintain a safe workplace and is contractually obligated to adhere to government mandates, policies, and directives. Your employment agreement with BTSI will require that you obey all workplace health, safety, and security rules and regulations established by BTSI or the customer. Every BTSI employee working on BTSI customer worksites will be required to complete an attestation before you are employed by BTSI, stating that you are fully vaccinated (full series of a Health Canada-approved vaccine, 14 days have passed since your last dose). This is a mandatory requirement and failure to complete the attestation will result in you being non-compliant for the position and we will therefore be unable to move forward in the hiring process.
