After further consideration we have updated our contractor and supplier guidelines on campus. 

Effective immediately, all contractors and suppliers are expected to be prepared to show: 

  1. Proof of fully vaccinated status (approved by World Health Organization or
  2. Proof of negative COVID-19 test: Tests must be paid for by the user, and must be Health Canada approved rapid antigen, rapid PCR or lab-based PCR test completed within the previous 72 hours from attending campus. Tests from AHS or Alberta Precision Laboratories will not be accepted.


How to get your proof of vaccination status

The Government of Alberta has identified options for how to demonstrate proof of vaccination.

  • Use the Alberta’s COVID-19 Vaccine record  system to access your card-sized COVID-19 vaccination record.
  • Paper records: you may also have received a paper immunization record at your vaccination appointment.
