Business and personal trips
Instructions for travellers from the authorities are changing from day to day. Canam Group’s decisions are based on the sites of the government authorities in each of the countries where we operate. The list of countries’ risk levels is updated daily.
Here are the specific instructions for all business and personal travel according to the risk level established by the country in question. It is possible that at the start of a trip, the country you are visiting or stopping in is a low-risk country, but the situation may change on your return.
All non-essential air travel should be limited.
Under no circumstances will Canam Group force an employee to travel if they are not comfortable doing so.
We cannot prohibit personal travel, but our responsibility is to protect the health of all employees.
