On August 23, 2021, the British Columbia Government announced that it would mandate proof of vaccination for individuals to participate in public life in the province starting September 13, 2021.
Before the mandate was officially implemented our team of lawyers sent a letter to the government stating that they have failed to publish any authority for this announcement.
It has been widely reported that the requirement to be vaccinated will be mandatory and no accommodation shall be made for individual Human Rights or Charter considerations.
That's why we, in partnership with The Democracy fund, called on the British Columbia Government to:
"Immediately correct the misreporting that has occurred on this issue, assuring all members of the public that the Government of BC will respect its Charter obligations and long-established Human Rights of its citizens, and specifically will respect valid medical, religious, and other exemptions."
