The federated colleges’ residences are included in this category.Additional public health limitations may apply to students in residence who have not gotten their first dose within two weeks of moving in. Any student who is unable to be vaccinated due to medical reasons or other reasons recognised by the Ontario Human Rights Code may apply for an exemption.

Students are asked to keep all emails, receipts and records pertaining to their vaccination so that they can confirm their vaccination status. All personal information provided, including information regarding being vaccinated, will be handled in compliance with the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. Students who plan to live in residence will receive further details on how to provide confirmation of vaccination and how to request an exemption in the coming weeks
