Important Information from City of Orillia on Proof of Vaccines
Submitted By Jenn Lowry on Fri 09 17, 21
Directly from the City of Orillia, please read!

"The Province has implemented a vaccine requirement for individuals entering recreation facilities, coming into effect September 22nd, 2021.  

Each time you enter the arena proof of vaccination will be required."

All participants, parents/guardians/spectators will be required to show proof of double vaccination (second dose received at least 14 days prior to visit) or a letter stating a medical exemption* each time they enter a recreation facility, with the following exemptions:

·        Children under the age of 12

·        Youth under the age of 18 who are actively participating in an organized sport

·         **People between the ages of 12-18 will be exempt from the vaccination requirement while at the facility actively participating in an organized sport but will be required to show proof of vaccination while at the facility as a spectator**


If your Provincial Sport Governing Body requires all players, coaches, etc. to be fully vaccinated, it is your responsibility to confirm vaccination status with your members, the City will only enforce the Provincial vaccination requirements at the entrance to our recreation facilities.


Proof of Vaccination

One of the following documents must be provided to confirm proof of vaccination:

·        An Ontario vaccination receipt from a vaccine clinic (printed copy)

·        A vaccination receipt signed by an Indigenous Health Provider

·        An Ontario Ministry of Health vaccination receipt received by email following your appointment (digital or printed copy)

·        Downloaded vaccination receipt from Ontario’s provincial booking portal

·        A vaccination receipt from another jurisdiction that shows the holder is fully vaccinated against COVID-19


Identification Documents

Supporting identification documents must be presented that show the name and date of birth of the individual:

·        Birth certificate

·        Citizenship card

·        Driver’s licence

·        Government (Ontario or other) issued identification card, including health card

·        Indian Status Card/Indigenous Membership Card

·        Passport

·        Permanent Resident card

*Medical Exemptions

Written medical exemptions must include the following:

·        First and last name of the person with the medical exemption

·        The physician or registered nurse’s information including:

o   Name and contact information of physician or registered nurse

o   Logo or letterhead identifying the physician or registered nurse

o   Statement that there is a medical reason for the individuals exemption

o   Effective time-period for the medical exemption


Process for Entering a Recreation Facility as of September 22, 2021


1.      Participant and parent/guardian/spectator is required to complete the facility entrance screening (similar to our current process)

2.      Participant is required to confirm their name on the program roster. If under the age of 18, proceed to the dressing room or playing surface. If over the age of 18, provide proof of vaccination and identification document

3.      Parent/Guardian/Spector – if under the age of 12, provide identification document.  If 12 years and older, provide proof of vaccination and identification document



We understand this process will be confusing and time consuming in the beginning, please encourage all of your participants to come prepare with the necessary documents out and ready for review. Please make sure all of your participants are treating our staff with respect; aggressive behaviour WILL NOT be tolerated.


We would also ask that our larger organizations have a member of their executive or an organization representative onsite for each of their rental blocks for the first week or two of implementation to speak to any members who are in opposition to the Provincial requirement and attempting to access the facility.

If you have any questions or concerns please email us.   Thanks Everyone
