Vaccination Passport: How to get it and where it is needed


Quebecers are now required to show proof of vaccination in order to take part in certain activities or visit some businesses.

The vaccination passport is required for all Quebecers 13 years of age or older. If you don't have the passport app, or can't or don't want to get it, you can show a paper version of your QR code or a picture of it on your phone.

Travellers to Quebec must show proof of vaccination from their province or country and photo ID.

You can access the vaccination passport for travel within and outside of Canada on the Quebec government website. It's the same page and form for both the regular QR code and the one for travel. Once your identity is confirmed you'll be given the option to download one or the other (or both).
