Effective Monday, April 18, 2022, Mohawk College is suspending the requirement for anyone attending a Mohawk College facility to provide proof of vaccination before entering a campus or college-owned facility. Please note: The vaccine policy may be different at some of our off-campus locations due to organizational policies and direction from the Ministry of Health. Please visit the course webpage for more details.
The college encourages all students and employees to get vaccinated to protect themselves and those they care about. For more information about COVID-19 vaccines visit the City of Hamilton website.
