As of March 1, 2022, it is no longer necessary to show proof of vaccination when coming to the Atelier. However, we ask that members and others who come to use the space keep an appropriate distance and when this is not possible, masks are required. It is also required when moving around the Atelier. 



In compliance with Saint Paul University and Public Health Ontario, anyone who intends on coming to The Atelier must be fully vaccinated as of October 4th, 2021. Fully vaccinated means it has been 14 days or more since your final dose of a one-dose or two-dose vaccine series. For our friends that require accommodations for medical reasons in accordance with the Ontario Human Rights Code, please contact the Atelier directly.
