In a call Thursday with Canada’s provincial and territorial premiers, Trudeau also said Canada could potentially open to fully vaccinated travelers in all countries by early September if the current vaccination trend continues.
Canada is largely off limits to US travelers. Tourism, leisure and casual visits are all forbidden. Some exceptions exist for family members, foreign workers and international students.
First Ministers agreed to work “on a proof of vaccination credential” to ensure that Canadians could “travel internationally with confidence,” the readout said.
Trudeau said Canada leads G20 countries in vaccination rates with about 80% of eligible Canadians vaccinated with their first dose and more than 50% fully vaccinated.
Trudeau said there were ongoing discussions with the US on reopening plans.
