Canada will stop requiring vaccinations for passengers on domestic flights as of June 20. However, foreign nationals wishing to enter Canadian territory by air will retain the requirement to accredit the full guideline. Effective that day, the government will no longer require transportation workers and federal employees to be vaccinated.
In a statement, the Canadian administration stressed that the measure comes “after a successful vaccination campaign”. In this sense, they stressed that the vaccination requirements were always a temporary measure. Currently, nearly 90% of the population has received the full diet.
As of 12:01 a.m. EDT Monday, June 20, proof of vaccination will no longer be required to board a plane or train in Canada. The use of masks will remain mandatory in both means of transport. In contrast, requirements for cruise ship passengers and crew will remain in place.
Las medidas fronterizas de protection actualmente vigentes, incluyendo el requisito de vacunación para la mayoría de los ciudadanos extranjeros al ingresar al país y la obligatoriedad de presentar una prueba negativa y realizar un aislamiento para los nacionales que no hayan recibido su serie de vacunas primarias, continuarán in force.

Dominic LeBlanc, Minister for Intergovernmental Affairs, Infrastructure and Communities, specified that “the government will continue to make decisions based on public health recommendations and will adjust its measures accordingly”. Omar Alghabra, Minister of Transport, argued that the measure “will support Canada’s transportation system” as it deals with the consequences of the pandemic.
