While there is no definitive answer on whether Canada will mandate COVID-19 vaccination certificates, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says they are “naturally to be expected” as part of the pandemic.
“As was the case pre-pandemic, certificates of vaccination are a part of international travel to certain regions and are naturally to be expected when it comes to this pandemic and the coronavirus,” Trudeau said on Tuesday.
“How we actually roll that out in alignment with partners and and allies around the world is something that we’re working on right now to coordinate.”
However, he noted “we’re not yet at this point.”
“Right now we’re focused on getting through this pandemic and being prepared to come roaring back once we’re through it,” he said.
Canada closed its land and sea borders to tourists over one year ago in an effort to curb cases of the virus.
More to come.
