Oakville’s rules state, “starting September 22, 2021, the Town of Oakville will require anyone 12 years of age or older to provide proof of identification and proof of full COVID-19 vaccination (or medical exemption) prior to entering or accessing” … “any new appointments for marriage licences and ceremonies.”
Vaccines will not be required for marriage licenses and ceremonies that had already been pre-booked.
“The town’s requirements exceed the province’s proof of vaccination regulations in an effort to provide added protection to our community and town staff from COVID-19. Read our Town of Oakville’s news release to learn more,” the mandate claims.
