    Great information and glad to hear things are getting better for every province. There will be something or another of restrictions for venues to be cautious not to do.

    I would like to add that BC there's still no dancing at the receptions and no mingling so you can't leave your table

    For Ontario, it is not as simple as that. In indoor food and drink facilities with a dance floor (night clubs, banquet halls, etc), you're allowed 25% capacity if you want to have dancing at your wedding. You can have 50% capacity if you choose to forego dancing.

    In outdoor food and drink facilities with a dance floor, you're allowed 75% capacity if you want to have dancing.

    All dancing requires masks that cover your nose, mouth, and chin.
