Travellers at Pearson Airport in Mississauga are reminded that they must have proof of COVID-19 vaccination and proper ID starting today or they won’t be allowed inside certain dining and lounge areas and other food and drink establishments at Canada’s busiest airport. 

Under Ontario’s new COVID-19 vaccine certificate system, which takes effect today, patrons must show proof of full vaccination and a piece of ID—driver’s licence, birth certificate, health card or passport—to enter settings such as restaurants, theatres and gyms.  

The provincial government says those who don’t follow the rules can be fined. 

Exemptions will be made as permitted by Ontario government regulations. Children under age 12 and those who provide a valid medical document stating they’re exempt from being fully vaccinated for a medical reason are allowed to enter establishments.  

Workers, contractors, repair workers, delivery people, students, volunteers, inspectors and others who are entering businesses or areas for work purposes, and not as patrons, are exempt. 

Pearson Airport officials say all food and beverage establishments on site are owned and operated by third parties. 

More information is available from the Province of Ontario.
