PHO Order on Proof of Vaccination
By order of the PHO, some events, services and businesses are required to check a person's proof of vaccination for access to their venue or space. This applies to all people born in 2009 or earlier (12+).

Starting September 13, you must verify that people have at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. By October 24, you must verify that people are fully vaccinated.
Failure to follow the PHO order may result in a fine. The requirement is in place until January 31, 2022 and could be extended.

If you are attending an event at the Mary Winspear Centre starting on September 13, 2021 please visit the event page on to see if you will be required to show proof of vaccination.

If you are attending a private event or an event not listed on our website please contact the event organizer who will have details on whether or not proof of vaccine will be required.
