Canada will launch the national COVID-19 vaccine passport soon! 

 


On October 21, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that the federal certification system for COVID-19 vaccination will be launched.

 

It is reported that the new vaccine passport will show your name, date of birth and COVID-19 vaccine history, including the dose and time of your vaccination. All information is readily available.

Trudeau said at a press conference this morning that so far all 13 provinces and territories in Canada have agreed to participate in a national vaccine certification system.

 

According to relevant officials, the vaccine passport will have a uniform appearance across the country, including the word “Canada” on the top corner. Canadians will be able to use the vaccine certification system when travelling within Canada and internationally.

According to Global News, the vaccine certificate can be downloaded to a mobile phone or printed, or a copy can be mailed. Currently, Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador, Saskatchewan and three regions have all been implemented.

 

Government officials said that the vaccination certification system also complies with the SMART Health Card standard, which uses technology that will allow officials to verify and authenticate information without providing any other health or identity information. In addition, the system will be tamper-proof and can detect any changes after the document is issued.

Vaccine passport must meet three points

 

Starting from October 30th, passengers taking almost all modes of transportation in Canada will need to produce vaccine documents, because all employees and passengers of the federally regulated aviation, rail, and marine transportation departments need to be fully vaccinated. However, there will be a grace period before the end of November, during which time a certificate of a negative test for the new coronavirus can be accepted.

 

According to the official website of the Canadian government, as long as your certification documents meet the following three points, you may already have the Canadian version of the COVID-19 vaccine certificate:

 

  1. There is the word “COVID-19 Proof of Vaccination” at the top of the document;
  2. The document contains: the logo of the province and the Canadian government (Canada, with the Canadian flag above the last a); your name and date of birth; your vaccination history, including dosage, vaccine type, product name and batch number; SMART Health Card QR code.
  3. Documents are bilingual

 

 

It is reported that all the first pages of vaccine certification documents in all provinces and territories of Canada are in a uniform format.

 

The QR code on the vaccine passport will include your vaccine history and COVID-19 vaccine information.

 

The federal government stated that Canadians should still avoid non-essential travel, but if you need to travel, this document will show your COVID-19 vaccination history and can be identified when you return to Canada and upload it to ArriveCAN. However, this document does not guarantee that travelers can enter other countries, and travelers must abide by local regulations.
