Enforcement of Quebec’s vaccination passport system in full effect today. Here’s what that means – CBC

The 2-week grace period is over, and the province could get tough on fines

Sep 15, 2021

The Quebec government is officially cracking down on enforcement of its vaccination passport, starting today.

The passport — an electronic record of vaccination in the form of a quick response (QR) code — went into effect Sept. 1, barring people who aren’t fully vaccinated against COVID-19 from a host of non-essential activities.

Today marks the end of the two-week grace period the province put in place for people and businesses to adapt. Although the system was in use, no penalties were imposed for non-compliance.

Here’s what you can expect going forward.

What are the penalties?
Starting today, businesses and patrons who refuse to use or comply with the vaccination passport system run the risk of being fined.

People must present their VaxiCode app or a printed proof of adequate vaccination in order to gain entry into a long list of businesses and non-essential activities.
