Welcome to Mount Royal University

When you visit the Mount Royal University campus, employees will ask you to show proof of vaccination in compliance with Government of Alberta requirements. Your cooperation and respectful conduct are appreciated. Hostile behaviour towards our employees will not be tolerated.

Effective Jan. 1, 2022, all individuals including visitors, guests and volunteers who attend University facilities must be fully vaccinated and provide acceptable proof of vaccination upon request, along with valid government-issued ID.

This means you have received a second dose of a World Health Organization (WHO)-approved COVID-19 vaccine, plus two weeks, to be considered immunized.

Acceptable proof of vaccination includes:

If you are coming to campus with a defined purpose, your host will verify your vaccination status. Those coming to campus as a guest will have their vaccination status confirmed at the point of service (e.g. at the counter in the Cougars Campus Bookstore, at the Recreation entry desk).

Valid documentation of a medical exemption from an AHS-approved medical professional is also accepted. This must be accompanied by a negative rapid test result performed within the 72 hours prior to being on campus. Tests must not be from the Alberta Health Services public COVID-19 testing system. Valid test results should be a written or printed copy that clearly outlines:

  • that the individual has tested negative for COVID-19 on a Health Canada-approved rapid antigen, rapid PCR, or lab-based PCR test; 
  • time of sample collection; and 
  • the laboratory that completed the test, if applicable
  • photos of a rapid test or result is not sufficient
  • a self-test completed offsite or self-produced documentation of a negative test result is not valid

This option is only available to those with valid documentation of a medical exemption.

At this time, children under the age of 12 do not need to provide proof of vaccination.
