Business Travel

No business travel outside the country of residence is authorized until further notice, unless a situation is deemed urgent or necessary for the continuation of operations, and must be authorized in advance by the vice president of the employee’s sector. Upon return, the employee must be placed in isolation for a period of 14 days, without access to Canam sites.

Any other travel to a worksite (outside the employee’s province or state of residence) or between our facilities must be justified by a necessary and important business need and must be approved by the employee’s immediate supervisor.

This does not apply to the delivery of goods.


Personal Travel

Upon return from any personal travel, the employee must comply with the isolation regulations of the country, province or state in which he or she resides. If a period of isolation of 14 days is required and the employee is unable to telework, the period of isolation will be at the employee’s expense.
