It will be necessary for these individuals to be able to provide proof of vaccination.

Cannabis and International Travel

In April 2017, the Government of Canada introduced Bill C-45, the Cannabis Act, to legalize, strictly regulate and restrict access to cannabis. On June 21, 2018, the Cannabis Act received Royal Assent. This marks an important step in the process of legalizing and regulating cannabis in Canada. For more information, visit Health Canada’s Cannabis page.

Royal Assent does not equal legalization. Until October 17, 2018, it remains illegal to buy, possess or use cannabis in Canada for anything other than authorized medical or research purposes.
