The Queen’s University Policy Regarding Mandatory Vaccination Requirements for In-person University Activities requires ALL community members, including employees, to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to participating in any in-person university activities. This is a condition of employment for all employees who are required to attend university property to perform their employment responsibilities. Individuals who cannot be vaccinated due to substantiated grounds (medical and other protected grounds under the Ontario Human Rights Code) may ask the University to validate the exemption and request an accommodation for these rare circumstances. If approved, they will be subject to additional health and safety measures.

We are committed to employment equity and diversity in the workplace and welcome applications from individuals from equity seeking groups such as women, racialized/visible minorities, Indigenous/Aboriginal peoples, persons with a disability, persons who identify in the LGBTQ+ community and others who reflect the diversity of Canadian society.

If you require accommodation during the interview process, please contact Human Resources Administration,, 613-533-2070.
