Proof of vaccination is required at indoor town facilities. Oakville remains in Step 3 of the Province’s reopening plan. Please continue to follow all current public health measures.
Updated September 23, 11 a.m.
In accordance with provincial requirements, the Town of Oakville has implemented a proof of vaccination program at town facilities. The town’s program requires that anyone 12 years of age or older provide proof of identification and proof of full COVID-19 vaccination (or medical exemption) prior to entering or accessing any of the following:
The provincial regulation requires that access to recreation and culture facilities is limited to individuals who are fully vaccinated, with some exemptions. These regulations are a baseline requirement and organizations have the authority to go beyond these requirements to strengthen regulations in the interest of public and worker safety.
The town has taken steps to provide additional protection to the community and its employees by requiring anyone 12 years of age or older, including those aged 12-17, to be fully vaccinated to enter town recreation and culture facilities and Town Hall.
Please note: In alignment with several provincial sport organization’s vaccine policies and to support youth working towards full vaccination, the town will allow individuals between 12 and 17 years of age (born 2004 to 2009) who are not fully vaccinated (14 days after last dose) and participating in organized sports, to enter recreation and culture facilities up to October 31 if they show proof of vaccination of their first dose and/or second dose, along with valid identification. However, as of November 1, 2021 these individuals will need to provide proof of full vaccination to enter recreation and culture facilities, even to participate in organized sports.

We will continue to follow direction from the Province of Ontario and Halton Public Health. For more information on Halton Region’s COVID-19 Vaccine program, please visit Halton Region's COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions page.
