Ontario’s vaccine verification app for businesses Verify Ontario rolled out on the Google and Apple app stores Thursday afternoon, ahead of schedule.
It was supposed to release next Thursday.
Businesses and organizations can used the app to scan the QR codes on province-issued vaccine certificates. After the code is scanned, a green checkmark will appear indicating a valid vaccine certificate, a red X for an invalid certificate or a yellow warning for a QR that cannot be read.
The app description says it also scans most government-issued QR codes from B.C. and Quebec, and that nation-wide capabilities are “in development.”
