St. Clair College is requiring vaccination to live in residence and play varsity athletics. Still, it will not mandate vaccinations for on-campus teaching and learning activities unless directed by appropriate government agencies.

The college says that in cooperation with third-party partners, they have developed a vaccination policy requiring all students living in residence to have received at least a first dose of a Health Canada or World Health Organization approved COVID-19 vaccine prior to moving in (proof of vaccination is required). Students will also be required to receive their second dose of the vaccine within the required minimum period and provide proof that they have done so. Students who can receive a second dose of the vaccine prior to arriving on campus are strongly encouraged to do so.

In addition, the college has, in consultation with local health authorities and the Ontario Colleges Athletic Association, developed a vaccination policy that requires student varsity athletes and associated staff to be vaccinated in order to participate in varsity athletic activities at St. Clair College.

Individuals who cannot get vaccinated for medical reasons or other grounds protected by the Ontario Human Rights Code can request an accommodation.
