Like other universities in Ontario, Carleton University will suspend its vaccination requirements for participation in in-person Carleton activities beginning May 1, 2022.  On the recommendation of Ottawa Public Health, Carleton will be maintaining the mandatory COVID-19 Mask Policy until further notice. 

The evolution of the virus and public health conditions are difficult to predict, so this decision is contingent on current conditions and directions continuing. Vaccine mandates may be reinstated at a later time.

Please be advised that Carleton University will still be requiring proof of full vaccination for children aged 5 years and older until May 1, 2022.

Any individual who believes they cannot be vaccinated on medical grounds or other protected grounds recognized by the Ontario Human Rights Code can request an exemption.
