Here's How To Download Canada's Vaccine Passport For Travel In Every Province & Territory

If you can't wait to take to the skies once again, you'll need to download Canada's vaccine passport for international travel ASAP!

That's because starting November 30, 2021, you won't be able to board a flight from Canada without a government-issued vaccine passport for travel. This applies to passengers aged 12 and older on domestic and international flights, as well as rail passengers on VIA Rail and Rocky Mountaineer trains.

In most provinces and the three territories, the new vaccine certificate for international travel is already good to go. In the rest of the country, it will be available by the end of this month.

The QR code on your vaccine certificate will include your COVID-19 vaccination history and the type of vaccine you received.

It's worth noting that having this documentation will not guarantee entry into another country, although the prime minister has said that he's "very confident" it will be accepted worldwide. Always check the entry requirements at specific locations before travelling.

Wherever you are in Canada, here's how to get your official vaccine passport for travel:

Alberta

Canada's standardized proof of vaccination is not yet available in Alberta, although it should be by November 30, 2021.

The province attempted to launch its updated version, but technical issues reportedly got in the way.

BC

Residents of British Columbia have three options to download the Canada-wide proof of vaccination, similar to how the BC Vaccine Card was downloaded. The fastest way is online via the Health Gateway.
