e-4354 (Civil and human rights)

Initiated by Lynne Walker from Calgary, Alberta

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the Government of Canada

  • On October 1, 2022, the Canadian government announced that all travellers would no longer be required to show proof of vaccination in order to enter Canada;
  • Legislators from every level of government, both in Canada and the USA, and who represent a diversity of political parties, have called on the American government to also remove proof of vaccination as a requirement to enter the United States from Canada;
  • Democratic Senators Gillibrand and Tester have called for border vaccination requirements to end with Senator Tester stating “It is past time for America to do the same.”;
  • It is time to safely reunite family members and friends who have been separated by border restrictions for years;
  • Reciprocal border measures for travelers entering both Canada and the United States have been a long-standing practice between our two countries; and
  • Border communities, the tourism and hospitality sector, and the aviation industry have been negatively impacted by extended border restrictions.
We, the undersigned, citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the Prime Minister to publicly call upon the American president to remove all remaining COVID-19 travel restrictions for Canadian citizens who wish to enter the United States of America.
