the federal government has removed the advisory to avoid non-essential travel for Canadians who have been fully immunized against COVID-19.
On Wednesday, during Mayor Patrick Brown’s weekly press conference, MP for Brampton North, Ruby Sahota, announced the federal government has ended the advisory against non-essential travel for Canadians who have been fully vaccinated.
Additionally, starting this weekend, proof of vaccination will be required for all those over the age of 12 in order to travel, both internationally and domestically in Canada.
As of October 30, those over the age of 12 travelling by plane and train will be required to provide proof that they have been vaccinated against COVID-19.
Further, next month, land borders between Canada and the U.S. will be open for those who have been vaccinated.
“As we continue to take the necessary steps and precautions to return to normal, fully vaccinated Canadians will now be able to enter the U.S. through land border crossings starting November 8,” Sahota said.
This will apply to all Canadians who have received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine, regardless of the brand.
“Canadians with mixed vaccinations—any combination of Pfizer, Moderna, and AstraZeneca—will be accepted to enter the U.S.,” she said.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies
