The Ontario government has lifted capacity restrictions on a range of venues including clubs, stadiums and restaurants with the caveat that proof of vaccination is required.
According to a government news release, “Ontario will slowly and incrementally lift all remaining public health and workplace safety measures, including the provincial requirement for proof of vaccination and wearing of face coverings in indoor public settings, over the next six months. This phased approach will be guided by the ongoing assessment and monitoring of key public health and health care indicators…”
The loosening of restrictions across the country is scattershot, but clubs and larger indoor venues have been operating in a limited fashion in BC and New Brunswick. In Montreal, sports venues are open but clubs are still in lockdown.
In Vancouver, A New Year’s Eve bill at the Rogers Arena has Bryan Adams headlining on a bill featuring fellow west-coast urbanites Mother Mother and 54-40.
Tickets will go on sale Oct. 29 with prices starting at $20.21.
