- Outdoor social gatherings and organized public events with up to 100 people with limited exceptions;

Ontario will be in Step Three for at least 21 days and until 80 percent of the eligible population aged 12 and over has received one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine & 75 percent have received their second dose.
Ontario Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Rocco Rossi was quoted in Canadian SME Business Magazine, “We are all breathing a sigh of relief as recovery is in sight with daily case counts dropping, vaccination rates increasing, and the Province signaling we are ready to move into Step 3 of reopening. However, this does not mean that small business owners and others hit hardest by the crisis are out of the woods”.
