Vaccination Passport

Press Release

As of September 1, 2021, the Quebec government will require the use of a vaccination passport for all sports and physical activities, outdoor events and festivals,
performance venues, cinemas, sports venues, bars and restaurants, arcades, theme parks, amusement parks and centres, recreation centres, and water parks.

This means that unlike the first game on August 27, the vaccination passport will now be required to enter Percival Molson Stadium and to watch Alouettes games.

Here is some important information:

The vaccination passport can be presented in three ways at the entrance of the stadium:
