Canada’s most populous province changes mind, will adopt digital vaccine passports

Ontario, Canada’s most populous province, said on Wednesday that people would have to show digital proof they had been inoculated against COVID-19 to enter a wide range of establishments, dropping earlier opposition to the idea. Beginning on Oct. 22, the information will be stored as a digital vaccine passport on mobile devices. Premier Doug Ford, who initially opposed the idea on grounds that it would “create a split society,” said the spread of the Delta variant had shown the need for additional steps.
