“Our new evidence of vaccine record and verifier application is much more secure and simpler for Albertans and companies getting involved in our Limitations Exemption Program. It enables Albertans to simply show their vaccine record to allow them to securely do whatever they enjoy – like going to a entertainment center, gym, restaurant, or attending a sports or arts event.”
