Vaccine receipts may be presented in digital or paper copy form.

To be considered fully vaccinated and eligible to enter one of these settings, one must provide proof of being fully vaccinated (received two doses of vaccine at least 14 days ago) and proof of identity (e.g. birth certificate, citizenship card, driver’s license or health card, Indian Status Card/Indigenous Membership Card, passport, permanent residence card).

Those 11 and under (who are not yet eligible for vaccination) and those who cannot receive the vaccine for a valid medical reason (that is documented with a note from a doctor or nurse practitioner) will be exempt from the requirements to provide identity and vaccination status.
