As well, the Prime Minister also said that everyone 12 years of age and older who wants to travel on a plane or train in Canada will have to be vaccinated.
Trudeau said that the government will continue the work it already started on establishing proof of vaccination for international travel.
And it will also finance the efforts of provinces who are putting proof of vaccination certificate programs in place.
In other matters, the Prime Minister indicated that he expected the new Cabinet to be in place in October and that Parliament will be returning before the end of the fall.
He also made it clear that getting through COVID will be the government’s top priority and emphasized that the way through the pandemic is to ensure that as many people as possible get vaccinated and pointed out that Canada is up over 80% of eligible Canadians having received two doses of an eligible vaccine.
