Not all services provided by the Region of Waterloo are considered essential.
But if you want to access those non-essential services run by the region, you'll soon need proof of vaccination.
The region said starting Monday, you'll need the proof of vaccination to access services such as museums and in-person library programs.
Residents will also need it to access public spaces within regional buildings, including meeting spaces.
There are exemptions for those with written proof of a valid medical reason, a valid exemption under the human rights code, or are under the age of 12 and are ineligible to receive the vaccine.
In a release, the region said municipalities across the region are also implementing vaccine policies for staff, volunteers and students.
