What is the Canadian COVID-19 proof of vaccination?

The Canadian COVID-19 proof of vaccination is a reliable way to show proof of your COVID-19 vaccination history when travelling internationally and within Canada.

This proof

  • was developed by provinces and territories, with support from the Government of Canada
  • is a recognized, trusted document that has been shared with our international partners
  • shows your COVID-19 vaccination history
  • can be verified after you upload it into ArriveCAN (on your return to Canada)

This proof does not guarantee you entry to another country. Before you travel, you must check the rules of your destination country and the countries you transit through.

You’ll need to show your proof of vaccination when travelling in Canada by air, rail or cruise ship as of October 30, 2021. The new Canadian COVID-19 proof of vaccination may be used to show that you meet this requirement.

Provinces and territories may also ask you to use this proof to access non-essential services.
