Proof of Vaccination for Businesses and Organization is now a provincial requirement

In order to enter the business and organization, with limited exceptions:
• The patron must provide the required proof of identification and proof of being fully vaccinated, and
• The business and organization must review and confirm the proof.

For a limited time period (on or after September 22, 2021 but before October 13, 2021), for indoor social gatherings associated with weddings and funerals (in meeting and event spaces) the negative result of a COVID-19 antigen test may be provided instead of proof of being fully vaccinated.

Effective September 22, 2021, patrons seeking access to the following areas of the premises of the following businesses or organizations must show proof of identification and proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before they can enter the area, with limited exceptions:

An individual is considered fully vaccinated if they have received:
• The full series of a COVID-19 vaccine authorized by Health Canada, or any combination of such vaccines, or
• One or two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine not authorized by Health Canada, followed by one dose of a COVID-19 mRNA vaccine authorized by Health Canada, or
• Three doses of a COVID-19 vaccine not authorized by Health Canada; and
• They received their final dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at least 14 days before providing the proof of being fully vaccinated.

Should an individual choose not to share the required information then, unless the Reopening Ontario Act (ROA) otherwise exempts them from this requirement, they will not be permitted to enter those businesses or organizations that require proof.
