Canada launched COVID-19 proof of vaccination for travel
On October 21, 2021, the Government of Canada published the details of Canada’s COVID-19 proof of vaccination for travel. The document will let Canadians demonstrate that they are vaccinated against COVID-19 when travelling within and outside Canada. All fully vaccinated Canadian citizens can get their proof of vaccination from their province or territory. The Government also advised Canadians to check public health requirements of the country they travel, since the vaccination and entry requirements can be different in other countries.
