CMHA Vaccine Policy Bulletin
Submitted By webmaster on Friday, September 17, 2021
Since the province has released its vaccine passport requirements and the Alliance has updated their RTH policy and vaccine requirements there seems to be a few questions.  While the province does not require participants between the ages of 12-18 or volunteers such as coaches to be vaccinated, the Alliance has taken a firmer stance on the issue.  The policy can be found on the Alliance web site at the following link: 

ALLIANCE Hockey Return to Hockey Plan V3.0

“As per Section 2 (PAGES 6-8) of the ALLIANCE Hockey Return to Hockey Plan, ALLIANCE Hockey has established a policy requiring the following persons (“Affected Persons”) to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (i.e.: including the 14-day period after receiving their completed dose) by October 31, 2021:

  • Players born in 2009 or earlier.  See Note 1
  • Game Officials (referees, linespersons, timekeepers)
  • Staff
  • Team Officials (coaches, trainers and managers)
  • Volunteers

Note 1 - Vaccine-Eligible Players

At the time of this policy, all players in the birth year of 2009 and before are considered eligible to receive COVID-19 vaccination. A player that is not eligible by age to receive the vaccine at the time of this Policy’s release will agree to complete their vaccination series within 30 days of becoming eligible.

All Affected Persons must present to ALLIANCE Hockey, as applicable, evidence demonstrating that they have received the completed series of an accepted COVID-19 vaccine by October 17, or earlier”

However if a participant or volunteer thinks they should be exempt from the policy there is an accommodation process available.  See below:

ALLIANCE HOCKEY COVID-19 VACCINE ACCOMMODATION PROCESS

ALLIANCE Hockey will comply with the Ontario Human Rights Code (OHRC) and provide accommodation up to the point of undue hardship to any Affected Person who is unable to be vaccinated for substantiated medical reasons and/or on grounds protected under the OHRC. Any Affected Person who has not been granted an accommodation and who has not received their completed series of an Accepted COVID-19 Vaccine by October 17, or who has not disclosed their vaccination status by that date, will no longer be eligible to participate in any Sanctioned Activity until such time as they present satisfactory evidence that they are fully vaccinated.

Affected Persons wishing to request accommodation can complete and submit the below CREED/RELIGION ACCOMMODATION or MEDICAL ACCOMMODATION form.

CREED/RELIGION ACCOMMODATION

Request for CREED/RELIGION ACCOMMODATION regarding mandatory vaccination for participation in ALLIANCE Hockey-sanctioned hockey activities:
