COVID-19 vaccine passports officially in effect in Quebec – CTV

September 1, 2021

MONTREAL — Quebecers will now have to show proof of vaccination against COVID-19 in order to gain access to certain non-essential services, including bars, restaurants and some sports.

“We’ll watch how it goes and we will adjust as we go,” said Quebec Health Minister Christian Dubé, adding further details will be revealed later in the week.

Starting Wednesday, merchants will be required to ask anyone coming into their establishment to not only show proof of vaccination, but also a matching piece of photo ID.

This will allow businesses to confirm that the people entering their space are “adequately protected” against the virus.

Certain groups will be exempted from the rule, including those who participated in the Medicago vaccine trial and those “with contraindications to vaccination against COVID-19.”
