TORONTO — The federal government’s Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, Dominic LeBlanc, says that while Canada is still aiming for a fall timeline for the rollout of the national vaccine passport, it may not go live for another couple of months.
The update came during CTV’s Question Period, featuring LeBlanc, over the weekend. The federal government has been working on a national vaccine passport for international travel for months.
The timeline from LeBlanc is in keeping with an update suggested by Justin Trudeau from the campaign trail last month.
At that time (Sept. 3) Trudeau said “we will be bringing in that more formalized version in the coming months or next year perhaps”, and suggested that the Liberal party was open to working with the provinces to certify provincial vaccine passports for international travel.
