Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe announced on Tuesday that the province will no longer require COVID-19 passports.
Passports will be dropped on Monday, where as the mask mandate will expire at the end of February.
The proof of vaccination requirement was introduced during the delta wave of the coronavirus pandemic in September.
Moe said that vaccine policy would create deep divisions across the province, and that people would remove the system that "effectively created two classes of citizens."
Moe said that the province saw benefits from the vaccine policy, and that transmission was reduced. Now, however, the benefits no longer outweigh the costs.
Moe said that vaccination does not prevent transmission of COVID like it did with previous variants, and that the policy has thus "run its course."
"It's time for us to heal the divisions in our communities over vaccinations," said Moe. "It's time for us to come together as families and friends, as communities, as a province, and as a nation... Let's not judge our neighbour because they may or may not be vaccinated."
Saskatchewan is the first province to put forward a roadmap to end COVID restrictions.
