A significant majority of Canadians like the idea of a vaccine passport for international travel and it appears that their government is going to deliver a solution.

Canadian Health Minister Patty Hajdu says her government supports the idea of a “vaccine passport” and will come up with a form of vaccine certification to allow vaccinated Canadians to travel internationally.

Nearly eight in 10 Canadians (78%) agree (including 56% who strongly agree) that all travelers entering Canada should be required to have a vaccine passport, according to a new Ipsos survey.

Comparatively, a smaller majority of Americans (71%) agree that travelers should be required to show a vaccine passport before entering the United States.

Like the United States, Canada has been in talks with other countries about finding consensus on universally acceptable solutions.

Hajdu said Canada will likely be able to fast-forward its own vaccine passport program by adapting an existing app.

Since late November 2020, air travelers flying into Canada have been required to submit their information electronically through ArriveCAN before boarding their flight. »

Liberals and NDP Block Debate On Updated Charter of Rights and Freedoms Review of Bill C-10

Authored by

The motion also calls on the Ministers of Justice and Canadian Heritage to appear before committee to discuss the issue.

By removing one of those safeguards, the Conservatives reasonably argued that the bill had been fundamentally altered and that an updated analysis is needed.

The Liberal government was the one that established requirements for Charter statements to “ensure the rights and freedoms of Canadians are respected throughout the law-making process.” »
