Canada to Develop a Proof of Vaccination

Lisa C. Community, COVID-19, Updates

As the economy opens up, many Canadians are looking to travel again.

Using a proof of vaccination will
  • provide foreign border officials with the information needed to assess whether you meet their public health requirements
  • provide a trusted and verifiable credential for when you return to your home in Canada.

So how to demonstrate our COVID-19 vaccination history to foreign and Canadian border officials? The Government of Canada is working with the provinces and territories to develop a secure pan-Canadian proof of vaccination that will

  • facilitate cross-border travel,
  • reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19.

Efforts are also being put into engaging Indigenous partners across the country.
