Return To Non-Essential Travel: Canada Was Left Out Of EU Travel Talks

Canada has been left out of talks between the European Union (EU) and the United States about a return to non-essential travel, according to new reports.

On Monday, EU officials confirmed that discussions were ongoing about a possible international COVID-19 passport called a Digital Green Certificate. It would allow restriction-free travel between the U.S. and the 27 European member countries.

The proposed vaccine passport would allow Americans to vacation in all 27 member states of the European Union, as long as they've been fully vaccinated with COVID-19 vaccines that are approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA).

EU officials have confirmed that no other countries are currently involved in these discussions, according to CBC News.

In response to Canada being excluded from these talks, Health Minister Patty Hajdu's office said that "our focus is making sure Canadians are safe and healthy, and our response will continue to be based on science and evidence."
