With a burgeoning fourth COVID wave rolling across Canada, a handful of law firms are participating in a rapid screening program to provide another layer of safety for those going into the office.

The majority of Canadian law firms are holding steady with a hybrid model, at least until the end of the year. They want to ramp up the numbers of people in their offices while following local health guidelines, but they don’t want to make vaccinations mandatory, so a number of firms have launched pilot programs using Creative Destruction Lab’s Rapid Screening Program. CDL is a nonprofit organization founded by the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management.
