The Canadian government is allowing dual nationals to work outside of Canada with vaccination credential

The Canadian government has adopted policy regulations allowing designated medical professionals to become dual nationals of Canada and other countries. This change enables dual citizens to show proof of vaccination credentials to travel outside of Canada, according to a Ministry of Health news release.

Previously, physicians working in Canada were only allowed to work in Canada with authorization from the Medical Board of Canada. This newly adopted policy will permit those working in Canada to become a member of the Canadian Association of Medical Immunization (CAMI) and be authorized to work abroad, while still being regulated under Canada’s medical and pediatrics professions.

The 2018 decision to introduce the “two-country vaccination credential” follows years of feedback from immunization practitioners and organizations with international health programs in Canada, the U.S. and the United Kingdom.

While most vaccinations are administered in Canada at Canadian health clinics or public health agencies, vaccinations can be provided to patients outside of Canada if provided by one of CAD$30,000 (U.S. $22,116) a year to be funded by the Canada Council of the Arts.
