Is anyone here being affected by the cross-border vaccine mandate Canada has going into effect?

Very curious to hear how companies are handling this and how you all are feeling about it.

Apologies if this is not an appropriate topic.

This is a perfectly valid question so no worries.

I've crossed in and out of Canada, loaded and empty, but not since the hysteria was instigated.

Yes, my outfit is affected. The advice I got on this site when I brought it up was to get the vaccine or quit. Got the impression that since it affects such a small minority of drivers, it’s not a big deal.

Yea, it is a small group, but my company has a Canadian division that crosses multiple times daily so we're being impacted like crazy...

The US is now advising US citizens against traveling to Canada. Will Mexico be next, and will Mexico and Canada advise against Their citizens traveling to the US? Too bad that the US has become less self sufficient and depends on goods coming across the border.

Andhe78, it actually IS a big deal. What is your company / are you ... going to do, forward?

You also, Caroline ! (ps: I appreciate the affect/effect used correctly, unlike the journalist asking questions, haha!)

This just in: Canadian X'Border Vax Mandate /Quit?

Hoping y'all keep us updated here, on TT ... as to what's going to happen.

Thanks!

As a retired Army vet living in Mexico with a baby on the way actually kind of interested in how you even get cross border jobs? I already have a passport and my SENTRI, just need to do a school because I've been out far to long to do the waiver (was a 92F)
