Ontario Premier Doug Ford is slated to announce his government’s impending proof-of-vaccination system — commonly called a COVID-19 vaccine passport — for the province today, his office has confirmed.

The news comes after Ford and his cabinet spent two days deliberating details of the plan. A source with knowledge of the discussions told CBC/Radio-Canada that an initial proposal was rejected on Monday.

The announcement is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET. It will be the first time Ford has publicly taken questions from the media in more than a month.

According to his office, Ford will be joined by Minister of Health Christine Elliott, Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Kieran Moore and Kaleed Rasheed, associate minister of digital government.
