September 17, 2021

The Government of Ontario has provided, in a September 14 news release, detailed information  regarding the upcoming Proof of Vaccination requirements and exemptions.

These come into  effect on September 22, 2021. The news release, the Regulation and the Guidance are found at these links:



Ontario Releasing Guidance to Support Proof of Vaccination Policy | Ontario Newsroom

O. Reg. 645/21: RULES FOR AREAS AT STEP 3 AND AT THE ROADMAP EXIT STEP (ontario.ca)

Proof of Vaccination Guidance for Businesses and Organizations under the Reopening Ontario Act (gov.on.ca)

OWHA recommends that every association and team carefully read all of the information at the  links above for details regarding Proof of Vaccination requirements and exemptions. (This  document is not legal advice.) 

Please note that there is a limited youth sport exemption. 

The rules of the limited youth sport exemption include but are not limited to the following  (please carefully read all the information links above for more detail): 

- Patrons under 18 years of age who are entering the indoor premises of a facility used for  sports and recreational fitness activities solely for the purpose of actively participating in  an organized sport, in accordance with the Guidance (third link).  

- The exemption relating to youth under 18 years of age actively participating in indoor  organized sport applies to training, practices, games and competitions. 

- Proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and proof of identification (or proof of  being entitled to another exemption) is required for patrons 18 years and older, including  parents or guardians of youth actively participating in an organized sport. 

- Proof of identification and proof of being fully vaccinated is not required for workers or  volunteers, including coaches and officials.

Please also note that rules regarding Proof of Vaccination requirements and exemptions may  vary by public health unit / region / municipality / location / specific facility and that these rules  may change. Communication with individual facilities is crucial. 

OWHA strongly encourages every eligible person to get vaccinated and help stop the spread of  COVID-19. We also strongly urge all adults who are taking any position of responsibility such as  coaches, managers, trainers, team staff, officials, volunteers and others to get fully vaccinated  prior to participation in hockey.  

The OWHA does point out that PHUs, municipalities, arenas and facilities have the authority to  be more restrictive and that some are being more restrictive than the requirements noted in  information linked above. This may mean that OWHA players and teams may be able to practice  or play in 1 facility but may not be permitted to enter other facilities without complying with  different local or facility requirements. The best way to ensure access into a facility is to be fully  vaccinated and carry proof and identification with you. 

The OWHA continues to work within the mandates of the provincial government and is prepared  to implement measures that are deemed appropriate by it to protect the health and safety of its  citizens and our participants and stakeholders.
