Appliance Technical Institute of Canada’s Vaccine Requirement
Vaccination is the most important way that individuals can protect themselves against COVID-19 and is a critical component of the Appliance Technical Institute of Canada’s strategy to support a safe return to campus.
This fall, the Appliance Technical Institute of Canada is requiring all those intending to be present on our three campuses, or on premises owned or operated by the college, to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and provide proof of vaccination by submitting your proof of vaccination document to email@example.com, in full accordance with all applicable laws and regulations.
Proof of vaccination can be a photograph of a paper vaccination receipt or an electronic receipt that you received by email. Those vaccinated in Ontario can generate and download their vaccine receipts here.
You are considered to be fully vaccinated 14 days after receiving the recommended number of doses of a Health Canada-approved vaccine. If you received a non-Health Canada approved vaccine, you will be considered fully vaccinated 14 days after receiving a Health Canada-approved mRNA vaccine. All members of the community must have received their first dose by Sept. 13 and be fully vaccinated by Oct. 15.
Individuals seeking a permitted exemption for medical reasons or other protected grounds under the Ontario Human Rights Code will be able to make a request through their primary health care provider.
Those who have not received at least one vaccine dose or who have not been granted an exemption by their primary health care provider for medical reasons or other grounds protected under the Ontario Human Rights Code cannot come to any college campuses or premises. More information on ATIC’s approach to vaccines is available on ATIC frequently asked questions page.
Those who are not fully vaccinated (i.e., partially vaccinated but not yet 14 days past their second or final shot) or have received a college-approved exemption must participate in the College’s rapid screening program and provide proof of a negative result before visiting campus, and may be subject to additional safety measures.
