The governing body for Eastern Ontario hockey will need to see your vaccine passport.

Effective immediately, Hockey Eastern Ontario (HEO) says anyone born on or before 2009 will have to show proof of full vaccination if they want to participate in their programs. These include players, volunteers, game officials like referees, employees of the various hockey organizations, and team officials like coaches and managers.

HEO says those participating in their programs need to show proof they have been fully vaccinated by November 8th or earlier. They say anyone who doesn’t show proof of vaccination by that date will not be allowed to participate in HEO events. However, the organization says it will accommodate those who are unable to be vaccinated for medical reasons.
