Prepare for the Winter 2022 Term

Laurier plans to return to normal, in-person operations for the winter 2022 term. This means that classes will be in person and students will need to be here on our campuses. As well, all students attending Laurier's campuses must be fully vaccinated for the winter term.

In order to be considered fully vaccinated, you must receive your final vaccination no later than December 20, 2021, two weeks before the first day of classes on January 4, 2022.

To better understand your specific situation and what additional vaccines you may need, please see:

If you have questions about the vaccine requirements or if you will need additional vaccines, please email

Quarantine Requirements and the STAQ Program

To travel to Laurier for the winter term, you will need to meet the Government of Canada's requirements for entering Canada, which include attending an institution with a COVID-19 readiness plan and having a quarantine plan. Laurier's approved COVID-19 readiness plan is the Safe Travel, Arrival and Quarantine (STAQ) program. By registering in STAQ, you will have a 14-day quarantine plan in place before you arrive in Canada.

Students who are not vaccinated, or who have received WHO-approved vaccines that are not approved by Health Canada, will be required to quarantine for 14 days in our STAQ program once they arrive in Canada. You may also require a booster vaccine before you can come on campus.
