Ontario Vaccine Verification App

Digital tools to assist individuals and businesses with proof of vaccination requirements are now available

Proof of COVID-19 vaccination (two doses, plus 14 days) is required when visiting select settings in Ontario. On October 15, the Ontario Government launched the following tools to assist vaccination verification:

Verify Ontario app

  • Available for download from Apple or Google Play stores.
  • Designed to help businesses efficiently confirm a person’s vaccination status. The app scans/reads official government issued QR codes, such as Ontario’s enhanced QR code vaccine certificate and those SMART Health Codes from other provinces, including Quebec, British Columbia and Yukon Territory.
  • This free app can be used with or without an internet connection.

Enhanced QR code vaccine certificate

    • Rolling out in phases (based on month of birth), all Ontarians can download their enhanced vaccine certificate with personalized QR code from the province’s COVID-19 vaccination portal or by calling the Provincial Vaccine Contact Centre (1-833-943-3900).
    • An electronic version can be stored on a phone or printed; businesses will need to accept both. Current vaccine receipts with the QR code remain valid.
    • Displaying minimal personal information, the enhanced vaccine certificate provides a safe and efficient way to provide one’s vaccination status when required.

Updated regulations and guidance for businesses to support the implementation of the enhanced vaccine certificate with a QR code and the Verify Ontario app are also available.

An FAQ document has also been made available.
