BC Ferries Will Not Mandate Vaccines For Travel & Here's Their Response To Those Asking

The feds recently announced that by October 30 you'll have to be vaccinated to travel within Canada, but travelling on BC Ferries is one exception to this rule.

While you will need to be vaccinated before hopping on a Via Rail train or any domestic flight, vaccination won't be required to use the ferry service.

Trudeau said that any exemptions to the new mandates will be narrow, but, although BC Ferries is regulated by Transport Canada, it is a private company.

BC Ferries will continue to enforce its mask mandate and cleaning policies while forgoing the vaccine requirement.

Health Canada has a robust website with all the latest information on COVID-19 vaccines and can answer any questions you may have.
