You are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, as defined by the Ontario provincial government, to enter ASM22. You must provide proof-of-vaccination and a valid government-issued ID with your full name and date of birth onsite at the event.
Please be aware that the government’s definition of fully vaccinated may change before the event. Please ensure you able to meet any updated requirements.
You must show both government-issued proof of identification (with your full name and date of birth) and proof of vaccination. For Canadian residents, you must show your enhanced vaccination certificate (on a mobile device or hard copy) with a scannable QR code; others may show whatever constitutes proof of vaccination in your home jurisdiction.
*Please note: Other places of business such as hotels, restaurants and fitness/spa facilities will have their own proof-of-vaccination requirements. Please contact them or look at their website for any health and safety details.
Medical or Religious Exemptions
The Ontario government recognizes a limited number of exemptions to vaccination. Please review the applicable rules and ensure that your exemption is recognized and (as necessary) registered with Ontario health authorities.
For those with a valid medical exemption as set out by the Ontario Government, you will be required to provide a QR code issued by the Ontario government. For more information, visit the Ontario government webpage.
Requests to be exempt from vaccination for religious or medical reasons were required to be submitted with appropriate documentation to firstname.lastname@example.org by no later than end of day, Monday, April 18, 2022, so that the ODA had sufficient time to review and make a determination about the exemption or to ask for further information if required. This deadline has now expired.
The ODA has considered all requests for exemption received by the above deadline and has responded accordingly. At this time, given our proximity to the ASM, the ODA does not have sufficient time to review any further exemption requests. Please note that all new requests for an exemption, including all requests without the appropriate Ontario government QR code that are brought forward prior to and/or onsite on each day of the ASM will be denied and you will not be permitted entry to the ASM.
We must as an organization make every effort to ensure the protection of the many participants who will attend at the ASM. We do hope to see you at our next event once the current pandemic resolves and we are able to lift the current restrictions.
The ODA will not reimburse any attendee for any costs for securing proof-of-vaccination or medical exemption.
