Since the summer of 2021, the Government of Canada has collaborated with provinces and territories to develop a Canadian COVID-19 proof of vaccination. This proof of vaccination provides people vaccinated in Canada with a simple, consistent way to demonstrate their COVID-19 vaccination history. This approach continues to support Canadians travelling internationally.

The federal government has committed to supporting provinces and territories through the COVID-19 Proof of Vaccination Fund. Money was set aside in the 2021 Economic and Fiscal Update. This $300 million fund:

The investment will help provinces and territories maintain proof of vaccination for as long as other international or domestic jurisdictions require it. Support will be for up to 3 additional years, beginning in April 2022.

The fund will also help maintain the strong collaboration between the Government of Canada and provincial and territorial governments moving forward. It also takes into account important considerations for Indigenous communities and organizations.

We will continue supporting provinces and territories to make sure that proof of vaccination remains accessible for people in Canada to support international travel.
