Ottawa requires that federal employees, including members of the military, be fully vaccinated by the end of this month.

The government expects employers in federally regulated industries, including banks and airlines, to do the same.


Brigadier General Bill Fletcher, who is responsible for the 3rd Canadian Division of Western Canada, oversees the training of Canadian troops and operations from the Pacific Ocean to Thunder Bay, Ontario.

There are about 12 thousand regular and reserve forces under his control.

Fletcher says that more than 90 percent of Canadian military personnel have already been fully vaccinated and isn’t worried about any pushback, which he calls a small percentage.

He says people will have to decide whether they will be vaccinated – especially if they expect to be stationed in areas where it is needed internationally.
