Alberta Restriction Exemption Program

Posted on: Monday, January 10, 2022 - 11:14

In accordance with Alberta's Restrictions Exemption Program and City of Calgary's bylaw, vaccination proof is required to visit Westside.

We remain committed to doing our part to keep our communities safe. What does this mean at Westside?

Mandatory Vaccines

To enter Westside or take part in activities or programs, all visitors 12 years and older must provide QR Code proof of vaccination, having received the full dose of a Health Canada approved COVID-19 vaccine and completed the 14-day waiting period. This includes program registrants and those who are accompanying children. Westside will not be accepting Covid-19 test results in lieu of a vaccine. 

You will be asked to provide proof of vaccination each time you enter Westside; please give yourself a bit of extra time to get to your activity. Members and pass holders who have already provided proof of vaccination and completed the REP Access form may use the Fast Pass entry lane.

Confirming Vaccination Records

A provincial QR code vaccination card is the only acceptable form of vaccination proof for Canadian residents; we are not able to accept past issue or out-of-country immunization receipts. Those who permanently reside outside of Canada are required to provide proof of a full series of a Health Canada approved vaccine in print or digital format.

There are three easy steps to vaccine verification:

  • Download your vaccination record with the QR code online at
  • Save your record either in printed format or as an image on your mobile device
  • When you arrive at Westside, we will scan your code for instant verification

Facilities Access and Programs
Westside facility access and scheduled activities will go on as usual. There will be no further restrictions at this time. Westside will continue with our regular health protocols such as masking, health screening, appropriate distancing, cleaning protocols, as well as ensuring mandatory vaccination for employees, volunteers, contractors and tenants.

Memberships and Programs

If you have questions about your annual membership, monthly pass or registered program, please send us an email at We will forward your inquiry to the appropriate Westside department and a staff member will be pleased to assist you.
