Proof of Vaccination

Throughout the Pandemic, Oak Bay Parks, Recreation and Culture have closely followed the Public Health Orders. We have worked to maintain and support opportunities for health, physical and social activities during this time. Thank you for your continuing efforts to follow public health orders to maintain a respectful environment for all.

Proof of Vaccination is still required for all activities at Oak Bay Parks, Recreation and Culture. By direction of the Public Health Order, proof of full vaccination is required to access some events, services and businesses in B.C. which includes all activities listed below. The requirement is in place until April 8, 2022. It applies to all people 12 years old and up. (Note: 12 years old are only required to show a single dose of vaccine). For citizens of B.C. and Canada this means a valid B.C. or Federal Proof of Vaccination QR code and a valid government issue photo identification. In the case of international visitors, this means proof of vaccination, whether electronic or in writing, that was relied upon to enter Canada accompanied by the person’s passport or photo identification. Please visit the BC. Proof of Vaccination page for details on how to get your QR code.

Please check in with Reception to show your Proof of Vaccination.

  • Fitness classes and all drop-in fitness activities including the weight room
