Starting September 13, 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 public health office (PHO). More information can be found on the Province of BC's website, including print-ready posters for your door, instructions on how to confirm proof of vaccine for your patrons, and who is responsible for enforcement. 

Here is an information sheet on enforcing the PHOs in your business.
