Legal Exemption Forms

Only three provinces in Canada have enacted legislation governing the vaccination of school children, Ontario, New Brunswick and Manitoba. All three provincial Acts contain legal exemptions for all vaccines required for school entry, and two of these can be accessed on line through the links provided below.

The rest of Canadian provinces have not enacted legislation requiring vaccination of school children, and hence have no legal exemption forms available. However parents are often told by school officials and medical people, “It’s the law – your child can’t go to school without the vaccines”. Health officials often use these type of intimidation tactics to achieve maximum vaccine compliance. Intimidation and threats violate the baseline medical ethic of Informed Consent.

Unless you know your legal right to refuse vaccines and to exercise your right to Informed Consent, you and your children are vulnerable to coercion by vaccine officials. The widespread belief that vaccination is mandatory pervades all levels of society and ignorance of legally available exemptions is pervasive. Media articles reinforce the misconception of mandatory vaccine requirements, and often omit information about the availability of vaccine exemptions in news reports.

Ontario’s Health Care Consent Act provides an excellent example of the type of provincial legislation that incorporates the elements that constitute Informed Consent:

The following are the elements required for consent to treatment:

  1. The consent must relate to the treatment.
  2. The consent must be informed.
  3. The consent must be given voluntarily.
  4. The consent must not be obtained through misrepresentation or fraud. 1996, c. 2, Sched. A, s. 11 (1).
