Quebec's Vaccine Passport Is Now Officially In Force

It's September 1, 2021, which means Quebec's vaccine passport is officially up and running.

From now on, all Quebecers age 13 and up will be required to show proof of vaccination in order to get into certain non-essential businesses and to participate in certain activities.

However, while the vaccine passport enters force on September 1, there will be a grace period until September 15. Authorities will not give out penalties or fines during that period.

You can download your QR code proof of vaccination by visiting the health ministry's self-service portal. You can then upload the QR code to the province's VaxiCode app, have a PDF version on your phone, or print out a paper copy to show to businesses and events that require it.

Keep in mind that you will also need to show a photo ID along with your proof of vaccination.

You can read about the full list of businesses and activities that require the vaccine passport here.

It won't be required everywhere, however. You can read about which places won't ask for a vaccine passport here.
