Reopening Ontario

The Roadmap to Reopen is the Ontario’s three-step plan to safely and gradually lift public health measures based on ongoing progress of provincewide vaccination rates and improvements of key public health and health care indicators.

Ontario has entered Step One of the Roadmap to Reopen as of Friday, June 11, 2021. 

The province will remain at each step for at least 21 days to evaluate any impacts on key public health and health system indicators. 

A summary of Roadmap to Reopen can be found on the Roadmap to Reopen at a Glance page. Full details can be found in Ontario Regulation 82/20 (Schedules 6-10).

Step 1

Step 1 will allow more outdoor activities to resume with smaller, well-managed crowds where risk of transmission is minimized, and will permit retail, all with restrictions in place.

This includes but is not limited to:

  • outdoor gatherings up to 10 people
  • outdoor dining up to 4 people per table
  • outdoor fitness classes, personal training and sports training up to 10 people (no games or practices permitted)
  • essential retail at 25% capacity and can sell all goods (including discount and big box)
  • non-essential retail at 15% capacity and can sell all goods
  • retail stores in malls closed unless the stores have a street facing entrance
  • indoor religious services, rites and ceremonies, including weddings and funerals, at 15% capacity of the room
  • outdoor religious services, rites and ceremonies, including weddings and funerals, with capacity limited to permit physical distancing of 2 metres
  • outdoor photography with restrictions
  • horse racing, motor speedways without spectators
  • outdoor pools and wading pools with capacity limited to permit physical distancing of 2 metres
  • outdoor zoos, landmarks, historic sites, and botanical gardens with capacity limited to 15% for ticketed areas
  • day camps
  • overnight camping at campgrounds and campsites, including Ontario Parks and recreational camping on Crown land

Ontario will remain in Step 1 for at least 21 days and can then move to Step 2 if the province has vaccinated 70% of adults with one dose and 20% of adults with two doses, and there are positive trends in public health and health system indicators.
