Outlier Masking Policy

We’ve missed you and we’re looking forward to welcoming you back in person!

As mask mandates lift in Canada and we have face-to-face meetings again, it’s important that we treat one another with dignity and respect. At Outlier, we’re experts in compliance risk management, but we are not medical experts. We respect your right to set your risk tolerance and believe that we should all have the freedom to do so without the need for detailed explanations. Our masking policy reflects this philosophy.

In Person Meetings

If you wish to be masked, wear a mask. You don’t owe us an explanation. We will not question your decision.

If you want the Outlier consultant with whom you are meeting to wear a mask, simply let us know. Again, you don’t owe us an explanation. We will not question your decision.

If an Outlier consultant asks you to wear a mask, please do so. We ask that you show our people the same respect that we extend to you. They may have a sick relative at home, be visiting an elder care center, or simply feel more comfortable masking in that moment. No detailed explanations of rationale need be provided in these instances.

Finally, we ask that if you are feeling ill to please let us know and we will reschedule for a later date, or to meet virtually rather than in person.

Meetups and Events

We will be re-launching in-person events soon. As is the case where there are speakers, snacks and beverages, it is not practical to enforce masking. As such, we will (as always) be offering virtual options for those that are not yet ready to join us in person.

If you wish to remain masked at an event, this is absolutely fine. Our zero tolerance policy in relation to harassment extends to your health risk management decisions. Individuals that do not respect this policy will be ejected from the event and prohibited from attending future events.

Finally, if you are feeling ill, we ask that you join us virtually rather than in person.


Thank you for taking the time to review this policy. We hope that it’s helpful in navigating these strange times.

If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.
