Vaccination Policy


Safety is our top priority

Our top priority is the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, Members, guests, and contractors. OREA is committed to taking every precaution necessary to protect our community and our workplace from the hazards posed by COVID-19.

Proof of vaccination

For this reason, OREA has implemented a Vaccination Policy that requires all employees, volunteers, contractors, other permitted visitors attending in-person at OREA workplaces and work locations to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as of November 15, 2021, unless there is a medical reason for not receiving a vaccine, as stipulated by The Ontario Ministry of Health or if doing so would be contrary to the individual’s human rights as specified by the Ontario Human Rights Code.

At this time, only OREA staff, volunteers (members of its Board of Directors), and contractors are allowed on the premises. These individuals are required to show verification that they have received all recommended doses of an approved COVID-19 vaccine (or combination of approved COVID-19 vaccines) at least 14 days before first entering the office and complete a form confirming/attesting to this.

Masks are required

In addition to being fully vaccinated, adherence to all public health directives and protocols is still required while in attendance at the office, such as screening upon entry, signing in, physical distancing, and wearing a mask.

In-person meetings and events

At this time, visitors to the OREA office and off-site events are restricted to what is essential. Our Vaccination Policy applies to all individuals (employees, volunteers, contractors, other permitted visitors) attending in-person meetings or events at OREA workplaces and third-party locations.

All individuals will be asked to show proof of vaccination against COVID-19 before entering the premises, unless there is a medical reason for not receiving a vaccine, as stipulated by The Ontario Ministry of Health or if doing so would be contrary to the individual’s human rights specified by the Ontario Human Rights Code.

As we work towards holding committee meetings and large-scale events for our Members and community, we will update this page with more details about what to expect before you arrive.

Thank you

We all have a role to play in ending the pandemic through vaccinations and adhering to effective safety protocols. Thank you for doing your part in helping us create a safe environment for our community.
