TORONTO — A Toronto-based privacy lawyer says businesses across Canada are considering putting policies in place that would require customers to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination before receiving service.

Molly Reynolds says businesses from almost every industry have been approaching her because they say they want to protect customers and employees as public health restrictions lift across the country.

She says customers can provide a document that proves they received their COVID-19 jab or businesses can ask customers about their vaccination status.

Reynolds says businesses considering such a policy should be able to show that the privacy infringement is worth it if it protects communal health.
