Here's A List Of All The Places Where A Vaccine Passport Won't ...

The CAQ government is attempting to convince Quebecers to get vaccinated against COVID-19 with the province's vaccine lottery and by requiring Quebec's vaccine passport for some non-essential places and activities starting September 1.

It won't, however, be required for anything considered essential and certain things deemed non-essential.

The government's website states that a vaccine passport will not be required for the following activities and spaces:

- private gatherings

- ceremonies (weddings, funerals)

- places of worship

- spas and saunas

- businesses offering personal and beauty care

- massage therapy

- dog training courses

- driving lessons

- lodging

- libraries

- museums

- hunting and fishing activities

For those who have not yet received a second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine or are choosing not to get one, there's still a list of things you'll be able to do in Quebec.

Other places, such as bars and restaurants, will require Quebecers to show proof of vaccination upon entry starting September 1.

This process will involve a combination of two mobile phone apps and the QR code you can download as proof of vaccination. Paper proof of vaccination will work as another option. The apps are set to be available on the Apple App Store as of August 25 and on Google Play later this week.

Health Canada has a robust website with all the latest information on COVID-19 vaccines and can answer any questions you may have.
