Vaccination requirement for Canada travel removed

One more step was taken by the Federal Government yesterday to
returning travel to normal. The feds announced an end to the vaccine
requirement for domestic air and rail travel. As of June 20th travellers
flying or riding the rails within Canada will no longer have to show
proof of vaccination. The rule also holds true for passengers departing
from Canada on international flights or rail journeys however there may
be separate rules in place for the foreign airlines and/or the country
you are travelling to so be sure to know those beforehand. All other
requirements still remain in place such as masking on planes and trains
and the return to Canada requirements such as vaccination and testing. Click here to learn more about this news
