Proof of Vaccination Update: Starting December 20,2021

Jason Allen



In accordance with updated requirements from the Ontario government, uOttawa is enhancing its proof of vaccination verification process for sports facilities. This takes full effect on December 20, 2021


ID Needed for all ages:

  • When requested, all persons 12 years of age and older accessing uOttawa sports facilities must present for verification their enhanced vaccine certificate with QR code and valid government ID containing the person’s name and date of birth (copy of birth certificate, Health Card).
  • Children under 12 years of age (or less than 12 years and 12 weeks of age, if born in 2010) should be prepared to present valid ID containing their name and date of birth upon request. Individuals without the appropriate documentation will be turned away from the facility.
  • 2010 Born children have 12 weeks as of Jan 01,2022 to be fully vaccinated (receive 2nd dose + 14 days) to enter uOttawa facilities (City of Ottawa has not given us thier guidelines yet - we have requested it).

Vaccination with QR CODE

  • Individuals must download the updated proof of vaccination with QR code and carry a printed or digital copy(on phone or tablet) when accessing the sports facility. If an individual is a resident of Ottawa and received their vaccination out of province, they must register their proof of immunization with Ottawa Public Health so it is entered into the provincial government system.

uOttawa Reminder: 

As per uOttawa’s mandatory vaccination policy, all persons 12 years of age (2010 born have 12 weeks as of Jan 1, 2022)  and older accessing uOttawa property must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.  An attestation and proof of vaccination must be uploaded in the uOttawa COVID Assessment Tool prior to arrival on campus. A daily self-assessment must also be completed before each visit.



It is  mandatory to wear a properly fitting mask covering the mouth and nose at all times, except when actively participating in physical activity in a designated area. Coaches, staff and spectators must wear masks at all times.


City of Ottawa:

The City of Ottawa will be distributing their rules and regulations in the next 24-48 hours. However, they will be very similar to these with regards to accessing facilities with vaccinations and ID’s.


Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
