Following a decision by the Quebec government, new measures aimed at ensuring the safety of public events are now being implemented across the province.
→ In effect since September 1st
In compliance with this regulation, we will ask to see your proof of full vaccination + 1 piece of ID for all activities taking place at the PHI Centre and at Arsenal Contemporary Art Montreal. Visits to the PHI Foundation will not be subject to this vaccine passport regulation.
To facilitate your visit to one of our events, we invite you to prepare your proof of vaccination through the VaxiCode app + to bring 1 piece of ID. You will be asked for these items upon arrival, as they are mandatory in order to access our buildings and safely enjoy our exhibitions.
To assist you with the potential questions you may have regarding the application of the vaccine passport in our spaces, we have compiled a Q&A for you to consult.
Anyone who is 13 years of age and older.
- In paper format;
- In PDF format on your mobile device;
- From the VaxiCode application;
*Please note that proof of identity with a photo will be required for all of the above formats.
Of course! People travelling to Quebec must present 1 piece of ID with photo, provided by their country or Canadian province, and proof that they have received two (2) doses of an approved vaccine from the following options:
- Johnson & Johnson (only requires one dose).
*Please note that for all vaccine options, proof of identity with a photo will be required.
The name of the app is VaxiCode and can be downloaded from the App Store. This application allows you to download and read the content of your QR code, which can also be found in your proof of vaccination.
We've set up a place where people can download their proof of vaccination.
There is a 15-day grace period to accommodate the implementation of the vaccine passport. If you are having difficulty downloading your proof, we will be flexible.
Until this date: September 15, 2021
Note that Android users now have access to the VaxiCode app on Google Play.
After this date, access to our activities will be denied without refund or exchange. Thank you for respecting the health regulations mandated by the Government.
Yes. The vaccination passport is a tool that interprets the information contained in the QR code of the proof of vaccination to determine protection status against COVID-19. It does not present personal information, apart from the name of the user, nor any details of the vaccines received.
School outings that are part of a mandatory course do not require the vaccination passport, but for extracurricular outings, the vaccination passport is required.
School outings = mandatory for a course.
Extracurricular outings = not related to a course.
The Ministry of Health and Social Services indicates that people with contraindications to vaccination against COVID-19 will have to go to a vaccination clinic with the appropriate documentation to have everything entered in the vaccination register.
In the event that you cannot provide proof of vaccination, tickets that were purchased before September 1st may be transferred to a later date or reimbursed exceptionally.
