Senior Editor

Justin Trudeau discussed the concept of vaccine passports in Canada on Tuesday, sharing the federal government's plan to implement an "internationally accepted proof of vaccination."

During a press conference on July 13, he was asked whether the federal government will play a role in standardizing provincial programs when it comes to proof of COVID-19 vaccination.

"Different provinces will be doing different things. Where the federal government has a role to play and where we are looking is in terms of vaccine certification for international travel," he told reporters.

He noted that some provinces, like Quebec and Manitoba, have made moves to introduce their own internal vaccine passports, while Alberta has announced that they won't be required.

The prime minister continued, "Certainly, the federal government will be working with the provinces to ensure that there is an internationally accepted proof of vaccination that will allow Canadians to travel freely in the coming years."
