Christine Hogarth, MPP Etobicoke-Lakeshore



Ontario has reached yet another incredible milestone in our vaccine rollout as 85% of all eligible Ontarians have now received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, and nearly 80% are fully vaccinated.  

This week, our government has released guidance for businesses and organizations across the province to support the upcoming proof of vaccination requirements in selected settings. It is important to remember that starting September 22, 2021, Ontarians will have to present their vaccine certificates along with the government-issued ID upon entering certain public settings. For more details, please click here.

Vaccines are safe and effective, and getting vaccinated is the most crucial step you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones. If you haven't received your first or second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, please do so today.

Thank you for doing your part, if you need assistance printing your vaccine certificate, please do not hesitate to stop by or call my office.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Waste Free Wednesdays

Waste Free Wednesdays

This week, my team and I had a great time walking around the Humber Bay Shores area, picking up the litter, and dispose of it properly. I encourage every Ontarian to go outside and clean up the garbage in the community. Let's protect our environment together!
