On October 21, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced standardized Canadian COVID-19 proof of vaccination for travel. PM said that a standardized vaccination proof is now available to residents of Newfoundland and Labrador, Northwest Territories, Nova Scotia, Nunavut, Ontario, Quebec, Saskatchewan, and Yukon. This has been achieved in collaboration with provinces and territories.
Furthermore, he added that this standardized proof will be available in the other provinces soon. This standardized proof can also be used to travel around the world as Canada is engaging with other countries to obtain recognition and acceptance. This new standardized proof of vaccination can also be used with ArriveCAN to submit mandatory information when arriving in Canada from other countries.
It’s important to mention that Canada announced that effective October 30, 2021 travelers departing from Canadian airports and travelers on trains will need to be fully vaccinated. However, there will be a short transition period where travelers will be allowed to travel after showing negative COVID test within 72 hours of travel. This will allow travelers time to become fully vaccinated. As of November 30, this transition period will be eliminated requiring all the travelers to be fully vaccinated.
As per the announcement, people vaccinated in Canada will be able to get vaccination proof from the province or territory where they received their vaccines. Apart from this, people vaccinated outside Canada will have to check with their home province or territory if they can register their vaccine record to get a Canadian proof.

As new vaccine requirements roll out for travellers, we are working to ensure that those who travel have access to a reliable, secure way to demonstrate their COVID-19 vaccinations, both at home and abroad. We will continue to work with provincial, territorial, and Indigenous partners so this standardized proof is available across Canada.”Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada
“Thanks to the ongoing collaboration and partnership with provinces and territories, the majority of Canadians will have access to a COVID-19 proof of vaccination they can use to travel.
