Vaccination passport

Côte Saint-Luc to control access to recreational buildings and library ⁠ 

Starting September 1, 2021, anyone aged 13 or older will be required to present proof of vaccination, as well as a piece of photo ID, in order to enter recreational buildings and the library in the City of Côte Saint-Luc, or to participate in an in-person program. This also applies to parents or other individuals accompanying children participating in activities. 

The buildings or facilities covered by this requirement include: 

  • The Aquatic and Community Centre (5794 Parkhaven Ave.) 
  • The Samuel Moskovitch Arena (6985 Mackle Rd.) 
  • The Côte Saint-Luc Gymnasium (5794 Parkhaven Ave.) 
  • The Côte Saint-Luc Tennis Club (8215 Guelph Ave.) 
  • The Côte Saint-Luc Public Library (5851 Cavendish Blvd.) 
  • The Harold Greenspon Auditorium (5801 Cavendish Blvd.) 

Note: You will not need to show proof of vaccination if you are going to City Hall to obtain a permit or pay a bill, nor if you are picking up books in the café located just outside the library security gates.  

Registration for activities  

With registration for activities in the fall session underway, the vaccination passport will be rigorously applied and fines will begin to be issued as of September 15, 2021. We encourage anyone who is eligible who has not yet done so to get fully vaccinated so that they may take part in sporting, recreational or cultural activities offered by the City of Côte Saint-Luc.

How to get your QR code 

After your second vaccination dose, you should have received by e-mail a link to your QR code. If you have not received that e-mail, or you cannot find it, here is what to do.  

  1. Visit to complete a form with the following questions:  
  • First name and last name 
  • Date of birth 
  • Date of your first COVID-19 vaccination 
  • Brand name of your first COVID-19 vaccine 
  • Medicare card 

The system will generate your QR code which you can download and print. You will then have a paper copy of your QR code.  

  1. If you do not have an e-mail address, or don’t have access to a computer and printer, proof of vaccination may be sent to you by mail. Call 1 877 644-4545 for the support you need. 
  1. You can also go in person to the Côte Saint-Luc Public Library Reference Desk (5851 Cavendish) or at the Aquatic and Community Centre (5794 Parkhaven). Be sure to have in hand your Medicare card and to know the date and brand of your first vaccine. A staff person will help you get a paper copy of your QR code. 

NOTE: In September 2021, the procedure from Quebec changed on how a person can download their QR code. An extra step was added, which in short requires a person to have access to their e-mail account when making the request to download the QR code. For many of the seniors who visit us at the library and ACC, they don’t have access to their e-mail account when out of the house, either because they don’t use a smartphone or don’t know their e-mail password and so can’t use our public computers to sign in to their e-mail account. Because of the extra step, we are now recommending that *most people* who need a paper copy of their QR code call Service Quebec at 1 877 644-4545 to request one. We can continue to help print QR codes for all people who (1) have a smartphone with e-mail access and (2) who registered for their COVID vaccine using their own e-mail address (as opposed to the e-mail address of the person who helped book their appointment online).

Download the app and add your vaccination proof 

Now that you have your QR code, you can, if you wish, upload it to VaxiCode application. This application allows you to register your QR proof of vaccination in a convenient format.  

What does this mean for those accompanying children under age 13 to Côte Saint-Luc facilities? 

Anyone age 13 and older, entering our recreational or library facilities must show proof of vaccination. Parents, brothers or sisters or anyone accompanying a child under the age of 13 to a swim class or for a visit at the library, for example, must be vaccinated, even if the little one isn’t.  

Does this apply to exterior organised activities? 

Yes, those ages 13 and older will be required to show proof of vaccination for outdoor organised activities such as baseball, street hockey or soccer.  

Are other sanitary measures still being enforced? 

Yes, it is still mandatory to wear masks indoors, to wash hands and to respect physical distancing measures. 

Be kind 

It’s been a tough 18 months; staff is working hard to help keep our installations open so that you may enjoy them in the safest manner possible. We are adapting to the latest provincial issues regulations. At times, the line-up may be longer than expected; there may technology issues or there may be someone in front of you unfamiliar with all the new guidelines. It may take a little longer to get through. Please be patient, be kind. We thank you.
