Here’s What Ontario Might Look Like for Artists and Producers Between Now and March 14

Step One. Step Two. Step Three. A Roadmap Exit Step. Modified Step Two. After teasing “good news,” for days, the province didn’t even try to give its path to recovery a name in their most recent announcement. Instead, they offered dates to identify each potential deadline with a caveat that protocols may be delayed, sped up or modified depending on how the pandemic progresses.

As the next set of regulations don’t take effect until January 31, provincial lawmakers are still making their way through what might or might not be allowed starting next Monday. As such, there’s still a lot of uncertainty. We’ve attempted to break down the information from the province and provide some analysis; however, where uncertainty may exist, we always recommend seeking legal advice.

Until January 31

January 31 – February 20

  • Performance facilities are limited to 50% of their “usual” seating capacity or 500 maximum; whichever is lower. 
  • Only seated events are allowed to occur.
  • Proof of vaccination requirements still in effect.
  • No capacity limit on artists, staff or crew.
  • Concert and theatre venues are not allowed to serve food or beverages. The intention communicated is to ensure mask compliance while indoors.
  • Organized public events in an indoor setting have a maximum capacity of 25 people. Food and beverages may be allowed under strict conditions (ie: when seated only, with a maximum number per table).

February 21 – March 13

  • Performance facilities are limited to 50% of their “usual” seating capacity.
  • Proof of vaccination requirements still in effect.
  • No capacity limit on artists, staff or crew.
  • Food and beverages are able to be served at venues; but patrons must be seated to consume it.
  • Organized public events in an indoor setting have a maximum capacity of 50 people. Food and beverages may be allowed under specific conditions (ie: when seated only). 

Beginning March 14

  • Performance facilities return to 100% capacity.
  • Proof of vaccination requirements still in effect.
  • No capacity limit on artists, staff or crew.
