The HCCC was formed in November 1998 with a mandate to encourage, develop and support initiatives that contribute to the social, cultural, environmental and economic well-being of Haliburton County and its residents. The Co-op grew out of the discussions of a diverse group of community members who came together to investigate how to create new wealth that could be re-invested in initiatives that benefit the community.

COVID-19 Vaccination Policy

Haliburton County Community Co-operative

(ratified by the board 

as of March 7th, 2022)

Background

The Haliburton County Community Co-operative works for the common good of the community and the social, cultural, environmental and economic well-being of the County.

HCCC supports the goal to have everyone in the country who is eligible and able, to be fully-vaccinated.

​HCCC supports the protocols and guidelines of the Province of Ontario and the local public health unit for vaccination, masking, social distancing, and other protocols.

In the fall of 2021, the Province of Ontario implemented a COVID-19 vaccine passport system that makes it possible to screen for double-vaccination and medical exemption. The Province of Ontario also mandated that venues for eating, gathering and entertainment must use the vaccine passport system.

As of March 1, 2022, the Province removed the requirement for the use of vaccine passports for entry but also left it up to each venue to establish their own policies and to continue to require vaccine passports and/or the wearing of masks for admission if they choose.

Policy Statement

(ratified by the board 

as of March 7th, 2022)

​As a minimum standard, all parts of the Co-op will follow the current protocols and guidelines of the Province of Ontario and the local public health unit for vaccination, masking, social distancing, and other protocols in relation to COVID-19.

As determined by the Province of Ontario, parts of the Co-op may establish their own protocols for meetings, activities and events that are over and above these minimum standards – which may include a requirement for vaccine passports and/or masking and physical distancing for participation in an activity or entry to a venue or event.

These policies will be established by the management committee of each Co-op Part.

Information on these requirements will be included in any promotion of an event and at the site of ticket purchase (on-line or in person).

The Co-op will support any Co-op Part in its enforcement of their established protocols for vaccine passports and/or masking and physical distancing for participation in an activity.

LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

We respectfully acknowledge that the Haliburton County Community Co-operative and all its projects and programs operate in the traditional territory of the Michi Saagiig and Chippewa Nations, collectively known as the Williams Treaties First Nations, which include: Curve Lake, Hiawatha, Alderville, Scugog Island, Rama, Beausoleil, and Georgina Island First Nations and also within the traditional, unceded territories of the Algonquin Nation.

 

The area now known as the Haliburton Highlands, has always been called, "Gidaaki", by the Anishinaabe. 

 

We respectfully acknowledge that the Williams Treaties First Nations and the Algonquin Nation are the stewards and caretakers of these lands and waters in perpetuity, and that they continue to maintain this responsibility to ensure their health and integrity for generations to come.

 

We also recognize the contributions of Métis, Inuit, and other Indigenous peoples in shaping and strengthening our province and country as a whole.

 

The intent and spirit of the treaties that form the legal basis of Canada bind us to share the land “for as long as the sun shines, the grass grows and the rivers flow.”

 

This recognition of the contributions and historic importance of Indigenous peoples must also be clearly and overtly connected to our collective commitment to make the promise and the challenge of Truth and Reconciliation real in our communities, and in particular to bring justice for murdered and missing indigenous women and girls across our country.
