Transportation Minister Omar Alghabra said during a press conference on Friday that unvaccinated Canadians will no longer be able to travel interprovincially via train, plane, or large marine vessels.
Alghabra said that those who are unable to get vaccinated will still be able to go through testing and screening measures.
"Vaccine requirements in the transportation sector will help protect the safety of employees, their families, passengers, their communities and all Canadians. And more broadly, it will hasten Canada's recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic," he said.
Alghabra said that the Trudeau government is seeking practical ways to require vaccines "as quickly as possible."
The announcement came at the same time as Liberal President of the Privy Council Dominic LeBlanc's announcement that the Trudeau government will move forward with mandating vaccines for federal employees.
Employees will now be required to have received at least two doses of approved vaccine for COVID-19.
