OTTAWA -- Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Canada may require international travellers to prove they were vaccinated against COVID-19 before they can enter the country.

Speaking at a news conference in Ottawa, Trudeau says the federal government will align its policy on whether it will require travellers to provide a vaccine certification with its international allies.

He says Canada is now discussing the issue with its partners in Europe, but it s up to each country to determine what requirements are expected from incoming travellers.

Trudeau says Canadians could begin travelling outside the country again by summer.

Bloc Quebecois Leader Yves-Francois Blanchet says he supports the idea of a vaccine passport for international travel.

He says countries should work toward a common definition of safe inoculation, and then allow international travel by passengers with proper certification.
