Covid information Updated Oct 04, 2021 Changes will be update here as we work through the required regulations
Vax Pass Required for Entry as per Public Health Order (October 5, 2021)
For Businesses, Services and Events - Important Information
Starting October 5, 2021, Prince Edward Island is introducing the PEI Vax Pass Program. Under this time-limited initiative, some businesses, services and events are required to verify a person’s proof of vaccination for access to their venue or setting. This applies to individuals who are 12 years of age and older.

You must verify that individuals are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by checking their government-issued vaccination record.

The requirement to verify proof of COVID-19 vaccination is a temporary measure until the risk of COVID-19 to PEI residents is reduced. Failure to follow this Public Health Order may result in a fine.
