Providing our partners with the support and resources needed to navigate their way forward during these unprecedented times.
Partner care has been at the heart of our journey together since the onset of COVID-19.
As we navigate the ongoing crisis, we know that every partner’s needs and preferences are different. We want to do everything we can to support you and your families during this complex time. This PartnerBridge portal provides you with the most up to date information regarding Starbucks Resources, National vaccine guidelines, and COVID-19 vaccine eligibility by province or territory.
Communities across Canada have begun distributing the COVID-19 vaccines in a phased approach based on province and territory guidelines. This timeline may look a little different in each community. Partners in some jurisdictions could become eligible to get the vaccine in March, while others may get access to the vaccine in June or September. You can leverage this site to be directed to your province or territory’s resources, so you know how to access the vaccine when your jurisdiction determines it’s your turn.
We do not currently require partners to get the vaccine, but we will continue to closely follow local health departments should their guidance change. However, we do strongly recommend every partner take the vaccine as soon as they can, outside of partners who are unable or choose not to for medical or religious reasons. We want to do everything possible to protect one another, our loved ones, and our communities.
Once vaccinated, we should all continue to follow the COVID-19 control measures put in place to reduce the spread of the virus – wearing a mask, keeping physical distance, not gathering in a large group, washing hands, and knowing when to self-isolate. The combination of getting the vaccine and these strict safety protocols is the most meaningful step we can take to help stop the spread. We’re in this together.
