You can upload your own QR code as well as any others that you might need, like your children's or spouse's. If you don't have a phone or access to the internet, you can show a paper copy of your QR code.
Businesses, meanwhile, must download a version of the app that scans their customers' QR code proofs of vaccination. Without the app, businesses won't be able to scan QR codes.
The vaccination passport will come into effect on September 1 and will be mandatory for a wide array of activities and events.
And by the looks of her Instagram story, her and her colleagues definitely vibed with the DJ sets they got to hear while there.
In the story she posted above, she wrote that she was there to check out the pop-up vaccination site that was open at Piknic on Sunday, August 22. But also, "to dance with her colleagues" — and that she did.
On Saturday, Plante let Montrealers know that they would be able to receive a vaccine dose the following day at this iconic music event that happens every weekend in the summer.
"For Montrealers who haven't been vaccinated and are planning to go, you can combine business with pleasure by getting vaccinated while you're at Piknic. I invite you to go," the mayor wrote.
Teleport is a new video speed-dating platform where you get set up with five people that you share similarities with and get to go on five dates in 30 minutes.
Afterwards, you're able to continue messaging the people you met during the dates if you both chose the option to keep talking to one another.
It is designed for people of all sexual orientations.
To get paired up, you get yourself a "ticket" for different events that pique your interest, such as one called "Outdoor Adventure anyone?" then you will get to meet people who also signed up for the same event when it begins.
Teleport will officially launch in Montreal on June 17 at 8 p.m. and you'll be able to start signing up for events that evening, which will allow you to go on dates with people of similar interests.
"Starting June 17th, we will have weekly events on Thursdays, 8 pm where people are smartly paired," Teleport told MTL Blog.
Why do the creators think Teleport is necessary in today's world?
The creators of Teleport, Chad Goodman, Tyler Greenberg and Michael Ding have been working on the app for two years now. "We completely evolved the way you meet new people," the creators told MTL Blog.
"The future of social is live, in the moment, and as exciting as the real world. We believe that the best encounters are face-to-face. When you can see their smile, hear their voice, and feel their energy."
"Swiping right will never replace that magic. But, swiping and texting have replaced real connections. The very apps that seek to bring us together are what are making us feel so alone."
They concluded by saying, "Dating should be exciting, in the moment, and face-to-face, not a mindless game, swiping on fake profiles. Teleport is inspired by the real world, and we believe that it’s the first real dating app.”
How can I make a Teleport profile?
Once Teleport launches on June 17, you'll be able to go to either the website or the app, which you can find under "Teleport Dating: Video Events" on the Apple App Store, and start building your profile.
When creating your Teleport profile, you'll be asked different questions like your star sign, how often you exercise, "do you enjoy drinking?" and more to help the team at Teleport get to know you better.
You can also write a bio about yourself and add various photos.
Once your profile is all set up, you can take a look at the events happening for Montreal and see which ones you'd be interested in video chatting people at!
Thanks to a new integration, you can actually find vaccination centres as well as find and book vaccine appointments without leaving the Transit app. Yes, the same app that helps you plan trips on the STM and tells you when the next bus is coming.
When you're looking at the Transit app's map view, look for the little injection symbol to locate a vaccination site. Then you can either press "Get directions" or "Make appointment." Note that Transit only shows vaccination centres with appointments available in the next seven days.
The "Make appointment" button takes you to Vaxstat.ca, where you can pinpoint available appointments in the coming days. Vaxstat then sends you to the official Clic Santé portal, where you can confirm your eligibility and make an appointment.
Afterwards, you can simply go back to the main screen of the Transit app to get directions.
