Canadian Forces Recruiting Group (CFRG) continues to adapt to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic while carrying out our mission of recruiting and processing applications of talented Canadians who wish to join the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF). CFRG prioritizes health and wellness and synchronizes its efforts to align with Health Canada and the Public Health Agency of Canada guidance.
As a result, the CAF will continue to maintain some COVID-19 vaccination requirements to ensure operational readiness to meet Government of Canada requirements. This will include members in certain key roles and tasks, members who are deploying, those maintaining high readiness, as well as those posted to countries that have their own vaccine requirements. At this time, applicants are not required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to join and serve in the CAF. New recruits will be informed of the vaccination policy for pre-deployment which includes COVID-19 vaccines, and that employment in certain positions, roles, and tasks may require COVID-19 or other vaccinations for operational and readiness purposes.
Thank you, in advance, for your patience and continuing interest in joining the CAF.
