Canada’s federal government is lifting vaccine requirements for travellers on domestic and outbound trains and planes, officials announced.
With infections rapidly declining and with around 81% of the population fully vaccinated, officials said they could rescind the eight-month old mandate.
The requirement that federal workers be vaccinated has also been suspended.
The new rules are due to take effect on 20 June, Ottawa ministers said in a statement.
Since 30 October 2021, anyone over the age of 12 has been required to be vaccinated against Covid-19 to board a plane or train in Canada.
