House of Commons lifts mandate on vaccines

The House of Commons has unanimously agreed to lift its COVID-19 vaccination mandate on June 20, the same day that other federal vaccination requirements will be lifted.

Government House Leader Mark Holland moved the motion on Thursday and it won all-party support.

MPs had been discussing the possibility of lifting the mandate this week, after the federal government announced that its COVID-19 vaccination requirements for the public service and for domestic and outbound Canadian travelers would end.

A vaccination mandate requiring anyone entering the precincts of the House of Commons – including MPs – to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 has been in place since the first day of the 44th Parliament in November 2021.
