VAX-LAW: A Symposium on COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates for the Private Sector




October 14, 2021

Time of event


COVID-19 vaccine mandates are the defining commercial and political issue of 2021. Private sector enterprises strive to balance compliance with evolving rules and proactive strategies to negotiate gaps in public policy – in real time.

Awanish Sinha, Co-Lead of our Public Sector group, will moderate an action-oriented virtual conference to explore where the business community stands and where we are headed next.

McCarthy Tétrault legal experts Kate McNeill-Keller and Byron Shaw will update you on the state of the law for vaccine mandates nationally.

David Herle, chief pollster at Gandalf Group and host of Canada’s premiere political podcast, The Herle Burly, will present on new, confidential research on Canadians’ opinions on vaccine mandates in the workplace.

Our panel of business leaders will talk about their real-time experiences with vaccine mandates.
