The Ontario government has divided access on its website based on their birth month.

People born in January, February, March or April can get their codes Friday, Oct. 15.

People born in May, June, July or August can get their codes Saturday, Oct. 16.

People born in September, October, November or December can get their codes starting Sunday, Oct. 17.

For residents who miss their day, officials said to try again on or after Oct. 18 as the website will be open to any birth month.

On Thursday, the province released its QR scanning app Verify Ontario, which is meant for businesses and organizations to use to check QR codes for fully vaccinated patrons as part of the enhanced COVID-19 vaccine certification.
