COVID-19 vaccine certificates ‘to be expected’ as part of pandemic, Trudeau says

While there is no definitive answer on whether Canada will mandate COVID-19 vaccination certificates, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says they are “naturally to be expected” as the pandemic rages on.

Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, he reiterated that “the goal has always been to protect citizens” from the virus.

“Scientists and other experts are currently closely watching the impact of full vaccination on the ability of the virus to spread,” he said. “Once the time is right, we will open up the borders up again, properly, perhaps with necessary vaccination certificates.”

However, he noted “we’re not yet at this point.”

Canada closed its land and sea borders to tourists over one year ago in an effort to curb cases of the virus.
