Brampton’s mayor is appealing to the governing PCs at Queen’s Park to provide information on how enforcement of the new COVID vaccine certificate program will be funded.
Patrick Brown said Wednesday he understands the need for the program so businesses can stay open and create safe spaces, but there has been no provision for how municipalities are supposed to pay for it.
“You know the province is saying call 9-1-1 or call bylaw, and I can tell you there are no resources allocated for this when it comes to the police or bylaw and at some point the province is going to need to reconcile that we have the resources to support this provincial policy,” Brown explained.
Enforcement of the program will be gradual, according to Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Kieran Moore.
He and Premier Doug Ford are asking that people be kind and considerate as we get into this new phase of the COVID-19 emergency.
As of Wednesday September 22nd, you need to show proof of double vaccination along with government issued photo identification to gain entrance to non-essential activities like indoor dining, sports events, movies and theatre productions.
You received an email receipt of double vaccination after your second shot.
Simply print that off or show it on your phone.
If you no longer have your receipt, you can download it at covid19.ontariohealth.ca
Toronto mayor John Tory says if you don’t have access to a computer you can go to any City of Toronto library to access your vaccination status and print off a copy of your receipt.
