Getting your QR FAQ

Effective March 1, 2022 Ontario no longer requires businesses and organizations to check for proof of vaccination. However, individual businesses and organizations may choose to require proof of vaccination upon entry.

Individuals also may be required to show proof of vaccination when travelling within and outside of Canada. Check applicable requirements at destination. " -- Stated on their website and here.

Why do we still enforce this?

  • We will eventually relax our measures once we feel safe to do so. But please understand that our staff and dine in patrons have immunocompromised members, children who do not qualify for vaccination yet, and elders at high risk living with them. We will continue to follow health Canada protocols with regular cleaning and checking of valid vaccination at the door to prevent any cases from happening in our establishment as well as protecting our community. We take each and everyone's health seriously here at Kuidaore and we hope you can understand and respect our decision in doing so.

Minors Age 5+

  • Do minors need to provide identification as they may not have identification to verify their identity?

If somebody is required to be fully vaccinated, they must prove both vaccination status and identity. The identification requirements are flexible, and identification is required to confirm only name of the person and date of birth – government identification can be used for this purpose; however, it is not the only type of ID accepted. Proof of identity can be established using documentation issued by an institution or public body, provided it includes the name of the holder and date of birth. Identification that young people may have access to that include name and date of birth could include birth certificate, or a passport, among other forms of ID.
