Working remotely – working from home

Based on the latest government recommendations from various countries, we ask that employees from all CAE sites worldwide work from home until further notice. Everyone who can work from home should do so. If you are required to come onsite, your leader will advise you accordingly.

Please refer to the general working from home guidelines and IT tips for more details.

As a preventive measure for employees who will be asked to work onsite, we have implemented protocols and measures to maintain a safe working environment. These include signage and reorganization of our workspaces to reinforce social distancing and other hygienic precautions.

Basic hygienic precautions prescribed globally:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
  • At all times, maintain 2 metres (6 feet) distance from others.
  • Please wear a mask at all times inside CAE facilities and ensure it covers your nose, mouth and chin.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Make sure to stay home if you experience any COVID-19 symptoms or if you have been in contact with someone experiencing symptoms.

Older adults with underlying health condition are at increased risk of severe disease and should practice enhanced precautions.

If you suspect coronavirus symptoms, which include difficulty breathing, fever and cough, or go seek medical help (call doctor’s office or emergency room ahead and tell them about your recent travel and your symptoms) and notify medical services at or +1-514-770-3202.
