OTTAWA, Ontario, June 18, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau today confirmed his government is working on “two tracks” to prove one’s vaccine status, and in the fall will be rolling out a system of “national certification of vaccination status” that travelers can use to prove they’ve had the “full” two doses of the COVID-19 jab.
“We are working on two tracks in terms of proof of vaccination for Canadians who wish to travel,” said Trudeau today at a press conference. “First of all, in the initial phase were going to be working with the ArriveCAN app in ways that people can upload an image of their paper proof of vaccination or online proof of vaccination so that the border agents on their return to Canada can verify indeed that they are fully vaccinated.”
Trudeau said his government will have something “in place in the coming weeks” for this summer’s travel season.
Trudeau recently announced his government was “right now” working on “certificates of vaccination” for travel with its allies, saying they are to be “expected” soon.
Today, Trudeau confirmed earlier reports that a “broad consensus” has been reached among the nation’s premiers to work to create “a proof of vaccine credential” system for travel.
He said that they are working with the provinces on a type of “national certification of vaccination status” that will be “easily” accepted around the world.
According to a CBC report about the federal government’s use of the ArriveCAN app, a source said, “The app will allow travelers to take a photo or upload a snapshot of their vaccine documentation into the app before going through customs.”
As it stands now, all travellers arriving to Canada must use the ArriveCAN app to submit their “travel and contact information, including a suitable quarantine plan, electronically,” before crossing the border or boarding a flight.
In Canada, provinces have jurisdiction on all health matters, which would include issuing any type of proof of one’s vaccination status.
Allison Kindle Pejovic, a lawyer for the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms (JCCF), recently told LifeSiteNews that a “vaccine passport system creates a two-tiered society whereby those who have chosen to be vaccinated are treated differently and discriminatorily compared to those who have not chosen to get the vaccine.”
Powerful nations of the world, including China, the UK, and Canada are discussing plans to require so-called 'vaccine passports' as a condition for travel, and possibly to restrict entry to shopping and entertainment venues.
Israel has already put in place a system to discriminate against those who choose not to take the COVID vaccine, and, in the United States, Joe Biden has signed a new executive order which could pave the way for the implementation of a 'vaccine passport' system. [See more below.]
This kind of medical dictatorship must be resisted, and therefore, we must act quickly before these authoritarian notions take root and spread!
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition to SAY NO to government 'vaccine passports.' Tell your legislators to respect your freedom not to vaccinate without fear of repercussion.
People should not have to live in fear of government retribution for refusing a vaccine which is being rushed to market by Big Pharma and their fellow-travelers in NGOs, like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
It would be intolerable and immoral for the government to coerce someone, and their family, to take a COVID vaccine against their will just so they can do their weekly grocery shopping, go to a high school soccer game, travel on public transport, or visit their relatives who live in a different part of the country, or overseas.
Medical freedom must be respected in principle and also in practice.
So, it is now time that our policy-makers listen to all voices involved in this vital conversation, and start to represent those who will not tolerate being punished, restricted, or tracked for refusing an experimental vaccine.
Simply put, legislatures must begin to act as legislatures again.
Questions must be asked. Hearings and investigations must be held. And, the legislatures of each state and country must return to the business of representing the people who voted for them, assuming their rightful place as the originator of legislation.
We will no longer accept the dictates of executive branches without question. And, neither can we accept the dictates of some doctors who seem detached from reality and from science.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which asks national political leaders (as well as state and provincial legislators in the U.S. and Canada) to pledge to respect the rights of those who refuse a COVID vaccine, and NOT introduce 'vaccine passports,' or any other system which would discriminate on the basis of taking the COVID vaccine.

Trudeau’s announcement comes on the same day Canada’s federal court ruled that quarantine hotels imposed by the government of Trudeau since January — and for which travelers must pay — are constitutional.
The court, however, also ruled that a pastor’s rights were violated when she was confined to a quarantine hotel against her will.
Canada’s Health Minister Patty Hajdu recently confirmed that, starting in early July, Canadians who have had the full two doses of a COVID-19 shot do not have to quarantine for 14 days, as long as they produce a negative test.
Also today, the Trudeau government decided to extend Canada’s closure of the border with the United States until July 21. The current closure agreement was set to expire on June 21.
Currently, both Manitoba and Quebec have forms of vaccine proof one can attain in digital form.
Recently, Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister officially launched its immunization card program for those who have received both doses of a COVID-19 vaccine. The new immunization card allows the vaccinated more freedom over those who choose not to get the experimental shots.
In May, the Quebec government announced that they will now send “electronic proof” in the form of a QR code to those who have had a COVID-19 jab.
The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) recently confirmed it will open an “Office of Biometrics and Identity Management” which will with use microchips embedded in Canadian passports to monitor international travel movements.
