His comments come one year after Canada’s first COVID-19 restrictions began to come into effect, including social distancing rules, limits on gatherings and non-essential travel advisories by the end of March 2020.

“But we’re in a better place now than we were last time this month rolled around,” Trudeau continued.

“Along with public health measures that are keeping us safe, we’ve got vaccines being distributed across the country, with millions more on the way,” he said.

He explained that 6.5 million more doses of the Pfizer, Moderna, and AstraZeneca vaccines are set to arrive in Canada before the month is through.

Additionally, the PM promised that “tens of millions more” will get here between April and June, helping to meet the goal of vaccinating all consenting Canadians by September 2021.

January 25, 2021, marked the one-year anniversary of the first COVID-19 case in Canada. 

However, it wasn’t until March that Justin Trudeau began delivering daily pandemic press conferences and announcing national restrictions related to COVID-19.
