Vaccination Exemption Questions
Submitted By Michelle Brown on Tue 09 21, 21
This has been a very busy few days, with lots of information being given to you.

An important point to stress for any families with children 12 years of age and older, who are seeking an exemption to continue to play hockey with the NMHA after the October 31st deadline, MUST contact the OMHA directly.  We are unable to allow any such considerations for exemption at our association level.  

If you are actively in tryouts, and wish to play rep hockey,  there will be NO accommodations or extensions available.  You must be eligible to play at the beginning of the season.

If you feel that this is an avenue that you wish to consider, please be mindful of the timeframe. This is potentially a lengthy process and should be started immediately.



From OMHA Vaccination Policy 

If an Affected Person cannot provide the OMHA or their Association with satisfactory evidence of

vaccination, the following will be taken into consideration by the OMHA:

  • The Affected Person’s reason for not being vaccinated; and

  • Documentation to substantiate a medical or protected ground reason for not being vaccinated.

    Any Affected Person requiring accommodation must provide the OMHA with documentation to substantiate their reason for not being vaccinated. Where accommodation is not possible without undue hardship to other Affected Persons, the Affected Person will not be permitted to be involved in any Sanctioned Activity for the duration of the pandemic or until such time that COVID-19 no longer poses a significant public health risk.

    The OMHA reserves the right to have accommodation medical documentation reviewed by an OMHA designated medical specialist and to make appropriate inquiries to verify the authenticity of any creed/religion-based claim for accommodation.

    Any Affected Person who is granted accommodation must undergo regular COVID-19 testing and must provide evidence to their Association, as applicable, of a negative test taken not more than 72 hours prior to each Sanctioned Activity.

    To begin the accommodation request process, please complete the application by visiting the following link: Link to Accommodation Request
