Measures affecting British Columbia's creative industries


British Columbia implements BC Vaccine Check September 13 for non-essential services.

Starting September 13, 2021, some events, services and businesses are required to check a person's proof of vaccination for access to their venue or space. The requirements are made by the Provincial Health Officer (PHO). Per the PHO order “Gatherings and Events – September 10, 2021”, the proof of vaccination requirement does not apply to workers at the workplace when engaged in their work activities. 

While employers are no longer required to develop and implement a COVID-19 Safety Plan, they should instead transition to a communicable disease prevention strategy.

WorkSafeBC has developed a guide to support employers in creating a communicable disease plan.  The guide includes a planning template to assist employers in understanding, implementing, communicating, and monitoring a communicable disease strategy.

Paid Sick Leave | Effective January 1, 2022, you can take up to 5 days of paid leave per year for any personal illness or injury. Your employer may request reasonably sufficient proof of illness.



If you're travelling within Canada or leaving the country, make a plan to show proof of vaccination.
