Welcome Back!

WE ARE THRILLED TO WELCOME YOU BACK!


PROOF OF VACCINATION REQUIRED

The health and safety of our visitors, members, employees, and community is our number one priority.

Beginning September 22nd, all guests (12 years and older) will be required to show proof of full vaccination (two doses plus 14 days), or proof of a valid medical exemption, along with a valid piece of identification showing your name and date of birth (such as a health card or birth certificate), to attend indoor and outdoor events at Science North and Dynamic Earth. Children who are 11 years of age and younger will be exempted from these requirements.

To receive a copy of your proof of vaccination, please visit covid19.ontariohealth.ca

Proof of a negative COVID-19 test will not be accepted for admittance to Science North, Dynamic Earth, or to our events, except for visitors with verified medical exemptions.

For information on this policy along with other health and safety protocols visit covid-19.ontario.ca/index.html


In keeping with Step 3 of the province’s reopening plan, visitors will continue to be required to wear face coverings.

In addition, Science North maintains a Mandatory Vaccination policy for all of our staff and volunteers. Science North is dedicated to the health and safety of all of our staff, volunteers and visitors and believes taking this approach is the best manner possible. Science North understands that the COVID-19 environment is fluid and ever changing and remains dedicated to adapting our policies as may be needed to ensure the health and safety of all staff, volunteers, and visitors. We will keep you updated on any changes to this policy.

More information to be provided and updated when available with regards to process. 

As always, thank you for your continued support as we do our utmost to navigate COVID-19 and these unprecedented circumstances. We look forward to welcoming you!
