Confused about proof-of-vaccination requirements for travel? Your questions answered – CBC

The federal government’s requirement for proof-of-vaccination to travel domestically starts Oct. 30

Oct 08, 2021

This week, the federal government announced that as of Oct. 30, all travellers boarding a plane, train or marine vessel in Canada will need proof of full vaccination against COVID-19.

“Fully vaccinated” is defined as a full series of a Health Canada-approved vaccine, with the last dose having been administered at least 14 days prior to the day of travel. A combination of approved shots is also acceptable.
