Canada lifts jab mandate for domestic, overseas travel

Canada’s federal government is lifting vaccine requirements for travellers on domestic and outbound trains and planes.

Officials say, with infections rapidly declining and around eighty one percent of the population fully vaccinated, they could rescind the eight-month old mandate.

The requirement that federal workers be vaccinated has also been suspended.

Ministers in the capital Ottawa, in a statement said the new rules are due to take effect on the twentieth of this month.
