Despite growing doubts about COVID vaccines, employers are now more supportive of workplace mandates than in the spring
Support for workplace vaccine mandates has grown 14 percentage points since the spring. A solid majority of Canada's business leaders now support workplace vaccine mandates.
Canadian companies show a notable divide on vaccine mandates
One year into the vaccine rollout in Canada, a majority of employers have a mandate requiring employees to be vaccinated against COVID. This reflects the level of support for workplace vaccine mandates.
However, there is a very substantial number of employers with no mandate, showing clear polarization on the issue. These results do not vary meaningfully by company size, sector or location.
