Now that the vaccine certificate app has been out for several months, officials are saying it can now be used to verify the status from those out of the province. Ontario’s Associate Minister of Digital Government Kaleed Rasheed said that the “made-in-Ontario app has been updated for businesses and can now read SMART Health QR codes issued by all provinces and territories in Canada.”
It will also be able to read QR codes issued by the Canadian Armed Forces. The news comes only days after the province announced changes to its proof of vaccination system. The change requires businesses to use the Verify Ontario app rather than check QR codes or receipts visually. The new requirement will go into effect on January 4th.
Proof of vaccination is required for restaurants, movies, and most settings where capacity restrictions have been lifted. It is not required for essential services such as grocery shopping and gas stations. On December 20, proof of vaccination will be required for youth aged 12-17 who want to participate in organized sports.
