St. John’s Port Authority —
A Beacon for Over 500 Years


Effective December 17, 2021

The Minister of Transport has requested that the SJPA develop a mandatory vaccination policy for its employees, tenants and contractors which would provide for the presentation of proof of vaccination status by individuals seeking to enter SJPA-managed property; and would also be generally consistent with the approach taken by the Government of Canada for the Core Public Administration. Exemptions to the SJPA’s policy may apply.

Accordingly, the SJPA’s Mandatory Vaccination Policy – effective December 17, 2021 - can be viewed at SJPA Mandatory Vaccination Policy | St. John's Port Authority.
