Update: November 10, 2021
PROOF OF VACCINATION:
· In accordance to the Government of Alberta’s Restrictions Exemption Program, beginning November 15, 2021, individual Alberta vaccine records with QR code (paper or digital) will be the only valid Alberta proof of vaccination accepted at our facilities.
o Vaccine records from First Nations, military, other provinces, and ArriveCan documentation for international travelers will continue to be accepted.
o Albertans can get their vaccine record with QR code on the Government of Alberta Website at: https://covidrecords.alberta.ca/home
We kindly ask that everyone plan ahead and have their QR code ready for scanning at the front door. This will speed up the process and reduce long lineups.

Flexibility Regarding Single Vaccination Dose Received
Through October 25th, there is an exception for people who have only received one dose provided that the dose was administered at least 14 days prior to date of entry and before October 25th.
If you have only received one (1) vaccination dose at this time and it has been less than 14 days since it was administered, you will need to provide PCR Negative test results in order to enter the facility.
Beginning October 25th, two doses will be required. We are still waiting for clarification on leniency period for second doses.
