The notice confirmed that Trudeau, Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs Dominic LeBlanc, and premiers "discussed the importance of working collaboratively on a proof of vaccination credential."
The group also discussed implementing a system that would allow Canadians to "travel internationally with confidence," although no specific details about what this could actually look like were revealed.
Further information about how Canada's travel restrictions could change are expected to be announced in the next few days.
This includes details related to officially reopening the Canada-U.S. border to non-essential travellers and welcoming fully vaccinated international tourists back into the country later this year.
