Canada Is Gearing Up To Announce Travel Measures For ‘Fully Vaccinated Canadians’ & Others

The government has been working on travel measures for vaccinated Canadians.

On Friday, June 18, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Bill Blair said that the government will be making an announcement regarding international travel on Monday.

This announcement will pertain specifically to "fully vaccinated Canadians, Permanent Residents, and others who are currently permitted to enter Canada," he wrote.

This notice came at the same time that Blair announced the extension of international travel restrictions. He noted that restrictions have been extended until July 21, 2021.

During a press conference on Thursday, Ontario Solicitor General Sylvia Jones said that "Premier Ford is working this week with federal, provincial and territorial leaders to make sure we have a consistent approach in how we reopen the borders safely and that will include discussions about which vaccines, whether they have to be one dose, two-dose, will continue."

Jones continued to say that officials will "make sure that individuals who received a Health Canada, NACI-approved AstraZeneca will have the same rights as other individuals who received other vaccines."

Details regarding international travel for fully vaccinated Canadians will be unveiled on Monday, June 21.
