Seneca College says it will drop its mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy in January.

In a statement posted to the college’s website on Monday, President David Agnew called the decision regretful, but necessary.

Seneca has campuses across the Greater Toronto Area and was one of the last post-secondary institutions in Canada with a campus-wide COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

The announcement comes a month after Ontario’s Superior Court dismissed an application by two unvaccinated students seeking to have the court block Seneca from enforcing its policy.

As of January  1, 2023, people on campus will no longer be required to show proof of vaccination, however the college says it is keeping its mask mandate until further notice.

Meantime, Western University — which remains one of the last places in the country with a vaccine mandate — announced on Monday that it was extending its masking requirement until the end of the fall term.
